Default Florida SB 1212 (2019)

From Florida Cares:

SB1212 relating to gain time is officially filed by Senator Bracy.

If passed, this bill will allow those newly sentenced to prison time for a non-violent offense after July 1, 2019 to earn gain time of up to 65% of their sentence. This bill does not apply to those who have life sentences, this bill does not apply to those who have violent charges. This bill is NOT retroactive and if SB 704 regarding retroactivity is passed, there is still question on if this bill would apply retroactivity to non-violent offenders sentences before July 1, 2019 in reading both the bill languages together.
