I think it means B Yard unit 5 and 113 is his cellnumber and low means he is on the ground floor.

I dont think the low is related to his custody level

Nope, nothing to do with custody and I've always understood it to be their bunk designation.

So as Maytayah said, (Yard)B (Block)5-(cell)113 (bunk level)Low

B yard at Kern Valley is Leve 4, maximum security.

YES THAT'S EXACTLY WHAT IT MEANS but the low may mean his bed is on the lower level. I ALWAYS HEAR MY LO SAY 420 BOTTOM WHEN THEY DO COUNT 420 IS THE HOUSING UNIT BOTTOM CAUSE HE SLEEP IN THE BOTTOM BED

That's very dependent on the individual. You can find a lot of info here about classification and privileges.

Honestly, he's going to be your best resource for these questions. Without knowing what penal code he was charged with, if he had any enhancements or strikes or if the judge gave him any credits for time-served we can't answer that.

Your boyfriend should be able to answer all of those for you and if he doesn't know, he can speak with his counselor.

If you was on level 3 and you keep getting in trouble and your points are at 60 or higher do they move that person to the next level which is maximum

Yes, I believe Level 4 starts at 60 points, still. And, if he's been messing up that potentially complicates the release date.

Stay out of trouble. Right now, there a max number of points a person can have deducted from their total each year at their annual review (called "committee"). I believe that is 6 points, but might be 7.
