Hi Kathryn, I can't answer your question, so I have moved your thread to the Cali forum. There are members here very familiar with Cali and Milestone credits....they'll be along shortly

Some of the milestone credits have changed due to prop 57. I believe they have changed 6 weeks to 12 weeks of earned schooling credit. To double check start here:

There is a lot of good information regarding changes to how much time they spend in prison based on the crime they were convicted of.

Silenus is correct, they are poised to double up to 12 weeks per yer and CDCR is widening the scope of programming a bit in order to achieve them. Level 2 & 3 facilities have been already seeing an expansion of available classes/groups, with Level 4's hopefully experiencing that soon.

Just to be clear, this has not been formalized yet but word is that it is on a list of reforms that will be going into effect some time this year. 6 weeks is the possible time to gain for now BUT it may be increasing soon.

Just to make sure I am clear.....true half-time non-violent offenders usually do not have strikes attached to them (unless the strikes were stricken for sentencing purposes for some reason.) He may be eligible for parole at half-time if the current offense he is serving is not a strike, but it is not a guaranteed release. Classes and milestone credits (which are given for rehabilitative efforts taken by the inmate) will help. Without them, because of the prior strikes, he would normally be serving a minimum of 80% of his sentence.

I am not sure if classes or milestones will impact his halftime parole consideration in terms of reducing the amount of time he has to serve before being considered for the Non-Violent Second Striker Parole, but they may be used toward reducing that 80% number.

a non violent second striker only has to do 66.7% of their sentences.

Literally saw the case where this was withdrawn 10 minutes ago...

NVSS does get a parole review at 50%, but not a guaranteed release. Otherwise it's a minimum of 80% still.
