Default Question about good time cut

I know this has probably been cleared up several times but I'm wondering about the 50% thing?? Whatever time someone is sentenced....does it automatically get cut in half? My BF keeps telling me this but I wanted to be sure....& if not all the time...when would it NOT be? Any idea? Thanks....

Statutory Good Time refers to the percentage of time an inmate must spend incarcerated. Some inmates convicted of non-violent crimes must spend 50% of their sentences incarcerated. Others who are convicted of violent crimes must spend 85% of their sentences incarcerated under "truth in sentencing" laws, or 100% if convicted of murder. The inmate's release date is based on the custody date of the crime which is set by the sentencing court.

I copied the above paragraph for you via IDOC site.
