CDCR does not have the authority to grant 50% credits for any time served in the county jail, unless the time served is under the direct supervision of CDCR (CCF's for example). Time spent in the county jail on a parole violation prior to the revocation hearing is served at 33% if the inmate is given 50% credits on the revocation. The 50% credits only apply to time served in CDCR.

Thanks JLS.
That means he has 24 days local credit, plus 7 days conduct credit, for a total of 31 days local credit upon arrival at CDCR Reception. He'd have 4 mos. 29 d. remaining. At 50% he has 2 mos. 15d. remaining until Earliest Eligible Release Date. Fom 7/28, that's a 10/11/2008 Earliest Eligible Release Date.

Default Now I am really confusted

Gryphon,
How come his time at county only counts for 1 day? If he has 31 days local credit how come it is not 31/3= 10.3 days credit. So starting 7/28 why wouldn't he have 2 months 5 days?

Sorry I'm slow but I am just not getting this. I know it is only 10 days different but I need to put in my vacation request at work as soon as I can. Sorry for being a pest and thanks for the help.

County jail credits, although stated as 33%, are actually calculated as 1 extra day for every 2 days served in the county jail. If he was arrested on 7/3 and received in CDCR on 7/25, he served 24 days actual time and will receive 12 days extra credit for a total of 36 days. 150 - 36 = 114 x 50% = 57 days to serve from 7/28. His release date should be 9/21

Default if transferred back to county

if someone is transferred back to county to settle his case that he was sent to prison for, and he already saw his counselor and recieved his release date in wasco, does he still get his 50% or does it go back down to 33% while he is in county?

12 years = 4380 days x 85% = 3723 days, which is 10 years, 3 months and 3 days. When added to 10/1/2007 makes his EPRD (Earliest Possible Release Date) 12/4/2017.

Actually, I miscalculated. 10 years, 3 months and 3 days added to 10/1/2007 is 1/3/2018. Sorry.

Depends on what he was convicted of. If he was convicted of Murder Second, he is a lifer and the Board of Parole Hearings will determine his release date. He will know his MEPD (Minimum Eligible Parole Date), but he does not have a release date yet.

Also depends on priors, gang involvement, etc. No way to even guess without more info. Good luck.

Welcome to PTO!!

Sounds like your looking at 531 days, right around 17 months, worst case scenario. Best of luck to you guys.

2 years = 730 days - 199 days presentence credits = 531 days left at sentencing - 27 days postsentence credits ( 8/5 to 8/23= 18 days + 9 days county jail credits)= 504 days to serve upon arrival to CDCR. 504 X 50% = 252 days to release, which would make his release date about May 6, 2009.

The May 2009 date is the earliest possible release date. He can not get out sooner, but if he messes up, he could lose conduct credits and stay longer.

I was confused about the fire camp 35% time reduction.
Is it 35% of their whole sentence or of the remaining time left, or is it 35% of the ealiest possible releas date?
Could anyone explain how this 35% time works?
Thank you!

For each day an inmate eligible for 50% serves in camp, he receives an additional day off his sentence. Since he would normally receive 2 days off his sentence at 50% (the day served plus the additional day for the 1/2 time credit), he in effect receives 3 days off his sentence for each day served in camp. It only applies to time served in camp (not their entire sentence).

Thats 86 days credit (local credits plus day-for-day from sentencing until CDCR arrival.). On CDCR arrival he'd have 1 yr. 279d. to serve. At half time that's around 320 actual days to serve. From 8/19/08 that's around 5/13/09 ERD.

The news isn't good.
From what I've been able to find out, CA 2nd degree murder convictions usually mean that the inmate will not ever be paroled, unless perhaps the inmate is released to hospice care. I haven't been able to confirm parole releases on any 2nd degree convictions, other than for some cases involving women who killed their abusers. I've heard rumor of a vehicular 2nd degree being paroled, but couldn't confirm it.
When defense attorneys advise clients about whether to take 2nd degree murder plea bargains (when charged with 1st degree murder), the advise ifs that in theory a 2nd degree results in less time; but in reality it really may be a lofe sentence. Therefore, there isn't a lot of practical difference between a 1st degree and a 2nd degree.
The firearm enhancement could mean as much as 25 to life consecutive to the 15 to life prison term that second degree of a non-police officer carries. (2nd degree of a police officer carries Life Without Possibility of Parole). That'd mean serving 85% of 35 years (unless the conviciton is very old, back when they recieved 50% conduct credits) to get to teh 1st eligle paroel date; but again that doesn't mean he'd be paroled then.
