Good Behavior

Interview with Richard and Donna

JM: Did you get off early based on good behavior?
Richard: I sure did. My original sentence was 5 years but I got out in 2 for good behavior.
Donna: I did not get any time off for good behavior.

JM: What is the most time off you can receive for good behavior?
Richard: In California, they are doing good time more and more. I got 3/5 of my sentence cut but I'm not sure if they go any higher.
Donna: I am not sure if you can get time off for good behavior in our county jail.

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?
Richard: It depends on how well you reprogram and rehabilitate. You can't fight, you need to be helpful. There is a lot of territory separation. If you aren't in the mix of all that they appreciate it and give you time off your sentence.
Donna: As stated above I am not sure if you can get time off for good behavior. I never witnessed anyone losing time off for good behavior.
