Welcome to Prison Talk and to the Texas forums. I hope you receive answers to your question from members who know how that system operates.

ISF through the County as a condition of probation is somewhat different than ISF for parole violators.

The fact that you did SAFP previously but have yet another violation before the Court suggests that treatment modalities are in order. Without getting those issues in check, you WILL be back in front of the Court on yet another offense somewhere down the road. Would you rather be back in front of them with a completed probation or would you rather be dinged not only for a period of incarceration but also the revocation?

The State Jail sentence may be day for day or it could be one that qualifies for up to 20% diligent participation credit. It all depends on when the offense was committed. Since there would be less than eight months actually served in the State Jail Division given the credits, I would be surprised if the Court gave much, if any, diligent participation credit even if you were otherwise eligible...
