Good Behavior

Interview with Hugh, Jennifer and Johnny

JM: Did you get off early based on good behavior?
Hugh: There is good time/work time. Its up to the judge whether you get it. You can serve half time or 2/3 time.
Jennifer: No becuase of my charges i had to do the full time
Johnny: I did get off ealry based on good behavior. I served 237 actual days and recieved credit for 118 days. In other words, I served approximately 2/3 time. I do not know if my getting off early was based on good behavior or whether it was that way irregardless of my behavior, since I had 2 incidents where I was disciplined.

JM: What is the most time off you can receive for good behavior?
Hugh: The least time you can do is about 1/3 of your time.
Jennifer: I believe 5-8 days of early release.
Johnny: I am not sure of this. I heard talk that it was common at that time for inmates in the jail system in San Luis Obispo to serve 1/2 time. I served 2/3 time.

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?
Hugh: Avoid write ups, no fighting, don't get in lockdown. Don't cause problems.
Jennifer: I didnt becuase i was in isolation, but dont fight, be respectful and do what your told. One girl I was across from had to stay a whole week over her out date for being written up so much.
Johnny: I do not know what types of actions are needed for an inmate to earn time off or what types of actions should be avoided for an inmate to earn time off. I did not ever witness somebody losing time off for good beavhior, to my knowledge.
