Good Behavior

Interview with Zach

JM: Did you get off early based on good behavior?
Zach: I did my entire time before prison in jail. I did not have model behavior becasue in my case, nothing was going to get me out early. I was facing 88 years in prison no matter what. My prison time even was flat time with no early release for good behavior. This of course gives no reason for anyone to follow the rules there either.

JM: What is the most time off you can receive for good behavior?
Zach: It really is about how crowded the jail is and the severity of your offense. If they are really packed, the jailers start with the least offense and let them loose. That person might have been in a fight while in jail, but that does not matter. No matter how good you are, if you have a major case, you are not going anywhere. It was a half million cash for my bond, no ten percent. End of story.

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?
Zach: You must stay out of fights, don't get caught with any drugs, don't intimidate others by attempting to steal their belongings, don't get caught in any sexual acts, listen to the guards and don't talk back or call them any names, and most importantly, demonstrate that you are not a danger to yourself or others if you were released early.
