Default Good Behavior credit. Is it real?

hey everyone, I am just wondering about so-called good behavior inmates can receive. I currently have an older brother who in prison and was sentenced to 66 months.Which is like 5 years and a half. He has two charges carjacking crime with felony possession of a firearm during a felony. he was just a driver in this case but he just as guilty for taking someone to commit a crime. He received half the time the codefendant was sentenced to. Possession of a firearm during a felony carries a mandatory 2 years for the first time which in his it is. then carjacking charge got him 3 years and 6 months. I am in Michigan, the lawyer said something about for every 30 days the inmates receives 5 days towards his sentence off. Is this true in the case of "violent" offenders? is there a possibility his time spent in there will be reduced a bit as along as he stays out of trouble and works I there?

Is this a State offense or a federal incarceration...sentences in months and the manner by which they are described suggest federal. However, to properly answer your questions, the agency has to be known.

It is a state offense, not a federal one sorry about that. It all took place in state court, with a state judge, not a federal one..

Is this a Michigan case? We cannot presume the conduct occurred in the same State as you are located within...

Michigan is a state that follows "truth in sentencing" law... There is no "good time" days off in State.. Oakland County Jail does have 1 day off for 30 days served... County Jails do practice "good time"... But state prison does not and any days off you accumulate in county jail will not transfer to a state prison sentence.
