Assuming they are both 50% sentences, this is the basic breakdown:

3 years at 50%= 1 1/2 years. 1 1/2 years minus 3 months for good time (there are some questions about when and if this will be awarded. The general consensus is near the end of the sentence)= 1 year 3 months. If he takes classes, that's another 45 days to subtract. Then subtract any time served in county.  It is possible he will be out in about a year.

Hi!  I might be reaching here for some extra days, but do you think what you have just copied/pasted would apply to this situation?  My LO was in IDOC (July 21, 2009) when he had a court date(August 18, 2009) but no writ, they rescheduled the date for 31 days later (Sept. 17, 2009) and did send a writ, but then moved his outdate to the date of 9/17/10.  The original charges he is serving time for are the same as his last court date.  The crime he committed fell on the property of 2 counties and charges were filed in each county.  He is trying to get the 31 days back, due to the counties negligence of sending the writ.  He had already plead guilty on the charges as well prior to the July 21, 2009 date, so ideally he would love to get 59 days credit at DOC.  Help if you can... it would be appreciated!

 :wc13: That one has me stumped. Hopefully someone who better understands how days are awarded can answer your question.

Thanks for looking... I hope there is a way to determine if he is eligible for those days in between when he was scheduled for court and when he actually was taken, since all the pleas were already done.

4 years 6 months at 50% = 2 years 3 months

Some, but not all, inmates are elegible for school credit, meaning he could earn extra time off by taking and completing certain classes/programs. Also, he will receive credit for time served in county.

I am wondering about the time that shows on my LOs screen, does not reflect the county time he served, are those really right?

The county credit, as I understand it, is for the days held from arrest to sentencing. Days between sentencing and transfer to IDOC don't count. If there is some dispute about whether those days were credited, I think the mittmus has to be reviewed.

I think we discussed this issue at another time, so let me look for it just to be sure.

Yes, they usually give the county time right away.  It depends on what you are considering county time.  Time while waiting to be transported is not counted.  Only time spent while awaiting bond or awaiting trial is counted for good time.  Once the offender is convicted the time spent waiting for IDOC to transport him is dead time.

In this board, RT advises a little patience concerning county time being displayed. He also says that, after a reasonable amount of time, the mittmus needs to be corrected to show the time spent in county.

Ok I Just had a quick question..I just got off the phone with my LO and he asked me about good time.. I don't understand all of this stiff but he Is in western for unlawful sale of firearms to a minor and got sentenced to three years...his projected parole date is February 26 2012 .. now is that with the good time or does he have the possibility of getting out sooner.  ????
Whatever it takes, or how my heart breaks, I'll be right here waiting for you.

If he got 3 years, then he got his day x day good time and he will do 1 1/2 years .. there is NO other goodtime at this time.  If he is eligible to take any programs/classes, he could earn an extra 90 days maximum credit, if he qualifies.

We have been discussing the suspension of MGT/SMGT goodtime for months and have a  board devoted to this on the front page of the site.

OK I am confused, I see a lot of people talking about 50% 85% and 100% which I get... however my boyfriend was sentenced at 75%, according to him its a new thing. He is charged with drug induced homicide. Has anyone else heard of this? I feel like his case is the only case that had a 75% on it!  :wc74:
