Default Time cuts in Indiana? Educational and vocational credits?

Hey im new here my boyfriend was just sentenced to 20 years with the 75% he will have to do a minimum of 15 years is that correct? Even if he does educational and vocational credits? Im a mess because hes 24 im 26 we dont have any kids together but now that this has happened not sure if its in our future... I have seen people's going up for parole after being in for 5 years after digging around im trying to see what the plan will be here for us...

OK, I've looked up Indiana Statutes....you'll have to do the actual research - and its very, very time consuming. Look at Title 11 Corrections:

http://iga.in.gov/legislative/laws/2...011#11-8-1-6.5

In the Statutes themselves are links to other Statutes that correspond with / expand on the one you're reading

About that 75%, I don't believe that's correct, I've never heard of doing 75% before parole eligibility. Violent offenses are usually 85%...every state is different is some regard, but 75% just seems odd to me However, that info will be in those darned Statutes, somewhere

Happy Reading!!

Marissa, he can get some time cuts for classes and for good behavior. My son was in when it was still 50% so his sentence was 6 years do 3. He was then eligible for a 6 month time cut for getting a GED. He also got a 6 month time cut for a trade. With 3 years he was only able to get an extra year off. Your fiancée got 20 years do 15 years. As soon as he can he should start looking for eligibility for a class that offers cuts. What is available is going to depend on where he s sentenced.

I am not on as often. My son is home but I try to look in periodically to see if someone needs support.
