Good Behavior

Interview with castly and Sarah

JM: Did you get off early based on good behavior?
castly: Yes, I got off a total of six month's early due to good conduct and behavior. They also said they were over crowded and they had to release me early. I was sure glad to get out of that place early. I do not know what I would have done if I had not been let out early.
Sarah: no

JM: What is the most time off you can receive for good behavior?
castly: I am not aware of the restrictions governing early release as told and hold through and by the county of upshur and the state of texas. There were never no discussions held regarding this early releasal procedure as no one ever mentioned it in passing conversation. I never asked for the laws regarding early releasal as I was told if I enquired about an early release, that I would be turned down by the governing laws.
Sarah: i believe for good behavior you might get 2 for 1

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?
castly: I avoided fighting, use of drugs, use of alcholic beverages. I also avoided befriending the violent social norm that seemed to be in power in the facility. I was told not to discuss anything with the gaurds or the employees in the prison. My attroney told me that talking with the staff inside would mean you would have to serve your whole sentence.
Sarah: fightin, arguing with the c.o.s
