Good Behavior

Interview with Jeffery, Serena and Gary

JM: Did you get off early based on good behavior?
Jeffery: Yes. With good behavior credits i served only six months of my original nine month sentence.
Serena: I was not convicted so this question is not applicable.
Gary: Lake Tahoe automatically gives most people (depending on crime) 1/2 time, so it's already included. hahaha.

JM: What is the most time off you can receive for good behavior?
Jeffery: Its a two/thirds scale for good behavior at El Dorado County Jail.
Serena: not an applicable question for me

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?
Jeffery: Fights. Making "pruno". Anything that constitutes illegal gambling. Causing trouble with the staff. Never heard of anybody getting more than two/thirds time credit. They warned that any drugs smuggled in or tabacco would result in an extra year of jail time. I saw more than a few inmates busted with tabacco of some kind but i dont think they got any extra time for it. Maybe just solitary.
Serena: this question is not applicable so i dont know what to write in order to get twenty five words, i was not aware that i was supposed to be convicted to do this interview but i hope its ok.
