JM: Did you get off early based on good behavior? Zach: Yes, I got good time for both good behavior and for going to a
drug program/ school full time. I went to school 10 to 12 hours
daily for 4 months, 120 days for an in-house drug program Trevor: No Andy: You don't get off for good behaviors, you have
good time program. But you can get out early if
you write a kite to the floor officer asking for
an early release, in my case I got a 2 day early
JM: What is the most time off you can receive for good behavior? Zach: I think a day off for every 2 served. Trevor: This is public information. You can look it up.
Approx. 3 to every 10 days. Andy: I believe if your crime was a minor misdemeanor or
nonviolent then you only do 1/2 of your sentence
but if it was more serious you have to do 2/3 of it.
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: Fighting, stealing food from the chowhall. Trevor: You don't have to shove your head up anyone's
behind but, you DO have to 'follow suit' Andy: Fighting, getting caught with contraband, just use
your common sense.
