Good Behavior

Interview with Sam, Ron, Scott, Michael and Bruce

JM: Did you get off early based on good behavior?
Sam: no
Ron: No. I was only there for pre-sentencing till i got bonded out. My month that I served though will count in my re-sentencing for probation violation.
Scott: In Dupage County Jail your waiting for sentencing so you don't know the actual length of the time you will be housed. After I was sentenced to the Illinois Department of Corrections I received 90 days off my sentence because I attended the Safeway Rehabilitation classes. And another 6 months for good character behavior.
Michael: I may have been released for good behavior, i don't know, they never told me. I just thought it was because of overcrowding, i think i heard something to that effect, maybe from other inmates. I served 5 days of a 7 day sentence.
Bruce: no it dont matter if your good time is time

JM: What is the most time off you can receive for good behavior?
Sam: None in county I think.
Ron: If I recall correctly Dupage does day for day meaning 1 day counts as 2 days.
Scott: In Illinois Department of Corrections depending on the class of your offence you can get up to 6 months off your sentencing.
Michael: I don't know, it was never mentioned in my case.
Bruce: day for day is how the count it in 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?
Sam: I don't know.
Ron: Nothing really.
Scott: Failing a drug test will definitely make you loss Good Time Off. Others can be mob actions, fighting with a weapon and assualting an officer. Any belligerent behavior they seem is extreme.
Michael: No, i never witnessed anyone getting time off for good behavior. I don't know what actions you need to avoid, except perhaps fighting or not cooperating with the jail officers.
Bruce: i seen people get into fights and the probable did i dont ask questions about what happened to them you are to mind your own
