Good Behavior

Interview with Collin, Robbie, Michelle and Lorrie

JM: Did you get off early based on good behavior?
Collin: I had to do ten days but I only did eight so I guess that counts as getting off for good behavior.
Robbie: no i did not and neither did anybody else that i know of.
Michelle: No, I never had that option. But, yes only if you are in there on city charges can you be eligible for road crew which is going out and cleaning up trash of the side of roads. You could earn 1 day off of each week you are in there.
Lorrie: no i had to wait until i got a chance to go back to court

JM: What is the most time off you can receive for good behavior?
Collin: I think the policy for good behavior is basically one day off for every four you serve.
Robbie: I have never heard of anybody getting time off for good behavior so i wouldnt know.
Michelle: You can only receive one day for every week or 7 days.
Lorrie: 1 day for every week when your in the honor dorm

JM: What types of actions do you need to avoid in order to get time off? Did you ever witness somebody losing time off for good behavior?
Collin: Some guys were acting like monkeys and doing stupid stuff. They would go apeshit any time the guards came around and that would get them into trouble. Just act like you got sense and you'll be fine.
Robbie: I have witnessed people getting more tiime for charges they aquired while in jail. But like i said i've never heard of getting time off for good behavior.
Michelle: You have to stay out of trouble and not have any write ups to be on road crew. But, while I was in prison yes I saw someone get time taken from their release date for getting a sex offense.
Lorrie: no fighting or being defiant stealing I saw a few females get to fighting and lost their time off and was locked up on the wall for 2 hours were the only thing you could do was just stand there
