How is the time broken down?
« on: June 02, 2014, 03:45:49 PM »
My fiancé is still in CCDOC and the state offered him a deal of 4 years plus 1 year to be ran one after the other. He has already been in jail 12 months and he's in the IBM program. If he takes the 4 years plus 1 year with a year in already, how long will he have to serve before he comes home???
We are one day closer than we were yesterday....this too shall pass!

Welcome to IPT.

His 4 years, if the conviction is at 50% would be 2 years and his one year would be 6 months, so he would do 2 1/2 years minus county time IF he is credited for his stay in there, so he would still have to do 18 months. 

If all depends on his conviction, if he has been in IDOC before, his history and behavior if he would be check to see if he would be eligible to earn any additional time for schooling and Supplemental Sentence Credit.

Do you know if it would be a 50% conviction or would it be 85%.  If 85% he wouldn't be eligible for additional time for schooling and if he has been in IDOC before and earned credit for schooling he would not be able to earn it again.

So for right now, count on 18 months anything else is a bonus.
