Darryl: I am not sure . But I do know there are certain sentencing protocols
Kristofer: i think you can earn 1 day off your sentance for every week of working on the block or something like that

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?
Clayton: i didnt witness anyone losing timeoff for good behavior. the actions are just that you dont get into any conflicts. just do your time and mind your business
Darryl: There are too many things to list . Its common sense , if its bad on the outside its bad on the inside . Dont get caught up in some shit .
Kristofer: Its not about avoiding actions. It's about doing certain things. You def need to NOT fight or start trouble with other inmaes or guards. But on top of that you had to work, like cleaning the tables after meals and cleaning the block after lock ins
