Good Behavior

Interview with Sarah, Drew and Paul

JM: Did you get off early based on good behavior?
Sarah: No, they don't offer good time, not that I know of.
Drew: Not really but I did get parole which I completed 80 percent of my time
Paul: i was given parole two years into a five year sentance. I would like to believe i was released on good behaviour but honestly i think i was released because texas ails are getting to full and so they started releasing not violent charges on parole.

JM: What is the most time off you can receive for good behavior?
Sarah: N/A
Drew: I think it's like one day a month really don't know
Paul: i was given one year and some odd time good time but only because i was a trusty for six months

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?
Sarah: N/A
Drew: Stay out of fights , gang activity stealing , jacking off on the female,guards , sexual activity, smoking , and drug use , dis respect
Paul: fighting, using drugs, being out of place which means being on the wrong cell block or in the wrong cell. Dissrespecting the guards, creating a disturbance, pretty much breaking any of the rules given to you in the handbook or being written up which is called getting a case. I did witness someone who had good time taken because of a fight.
