Time off for good behavior
Food and Commissary
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
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 release.
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.
