John: It was brought up to the judge when it came to sentencing that I served and was on good behavior and my time was reduced so yes.
Raquel: No.
Colby: No
Nikki: no, I did not inquire about this
Lea: I could have because i was in a trustee pod i was not there long enough.
Hoyllwood: Good behavior? Thats a joke. In the words of an officer that brought me in,"Everyone who enters is a piece of shit and deserves to be here."

Ricky: no, state jail time is day for day. my felonies were state felonies.
Warren: Yes I did get trustee status an received 3 days for one day

JM: What is the most time off you can receive for good behavior?
John: 1 day served equals three days if you are on good behavior and a trustee. I would have had to be there two months if it wasn't for that.
Nikki: I think it is 2 for 1
Lea: If you are in a trustee pod you automatically get your days 2 for one. if you become a trustee your days are 3 for one... meaning if your sentenced to 3 months you only serve one. Tell them you want to work as soon as you get there.
Hoyllwood: ???
Woody: 2-1
Jeremy: Four months in a calendar year. They have this 3 for 1, good time for good behavior system where you receive 3 days of jail time credit for 1 actual day of good behavior time in there.
Lekisha: If I'm correct it s 2for 1 have not gotten good time
Gary: 3 for 1 as a trustee
Ricky: it depends on your charge. if you are a trustee worker you can get up to 3 days for 1 day in the jail.
Warren: Three days for one day is the most I've herd of

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?
John: Need to stay out of legal trouble.
Colby: Infractions with Personal or Inmates
Nikki: do not get in any trouble, no contraband, no discipline reports
Lea: Drugs, hair bands, food when your not supposed to have it.
Hoyllwood: I guess fighting...
Woody: fights acting like a kid
Jeremy: Breaking some of what they consider to be serious infractions such as fighting and causing serious bodily injury, attempting to escape, assaulting a detention officer, sexually assaulting another inmate, putting tatoos on people and any other offense they deem dangerous. I never heard any one losing their good time, most everybody just wanted to get the hell out of there as soon as they could.
Lekisha: No I never witnessed that but its pretty much listening and obeying all rules and regulations respecting the officers and the serts making sure you don't have any contraband during shakedowns no fights
Gary: You need to follow all rules and regulations Did not get in trouble do not going to fight and not get caught with contraband did not receive any write ups
Ricky: You dont get written up for fighting or contraband. I never seen anyone lose goodtime because bexar county jail is so over packed. basically stay out of trouble and you get your good time.
Warren: Yes I did . I saw someone steal a roll of plastic wrap as a trustee then lost that status and was sent to a different unit lost all good time.
