Act 509 will become law August 1, 2016. It allows some prisoners with crimes of violence to be eligible for parole after completion of 75% of their sentence, instead of the current 85%.

"Act 1099" refers to Act 1099 of the 1999 Regular Session of the Legislature, which amended Louisiana Revised Statute 15:571.3. You are probably referring to the amendment to that Section by Act 110 of the 2012 Regular Session of the Legislature, which changed the wording of R.S. 15:571.3 from "The amount of diminution of sentence allowed under the provisions of this Section shall be at the rate of thirty-five days for every thirty days in actual custody served on the imposed sentence ..." to read "...one and one half-day for every one day in actual custody served on the imposed sentence ..."

It was House Bill 802, signed by the governor on June 16,2016 as Act 509.

Unable to locate any information about 6/24/16 DOC budget cuts i.e. what shall be affected etc. Rumored early releases-non violent, diversion programs-re entry.

Winn and Allen will essentially become parish jails with much of the programming reduced and the day reporting system will sadly be cut in some places. DOC is trying to do the best possible with reduced dollars.

So were any laws passed in benefit of our loved ones recently? There is news going round my loved ones prison that a law would be in place today to reduce their sentencing but I seem to think it's not true

Thanks for responding! I am taking care of a child whose parents are both incarcerated. Her mother is down in Louisiana and asked me to look into this new law she heard about that could mean an early release for her, but in all my research, all I have found are rumours :/

Thanks, again!
