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.
