Exclamation Public Act 11-51/ bill #6650 Passed!!

These are the subsections pertaining to sentence reduction/good time. Sections 22-25


Sec. 22. (NEW) (Effective July 1, 2011) (a) Notwithstanding any provision of the general statutes, any person sentenced to a term of imprisonment for a crime committed on or after October 1, 1994, and committed to the custody of the Commissioner of Correction on or after said date, except a person sentenced for a violation of section 53a-54a, 53a-54b, 53a-54c, 53a-54d, 53a-70a or 53a-100aa, may be eligible to earn risk reduction credit toward a reduction of such person's sentence, in an amount not to exceed five days per month, at the discretion of the Commissioner of Correction for conduct as provided in subsection (b) of this section occurring on or after April 1, 2006.

(b) An inmate may earn risk reduction credit for adherence to the inmate's offender accountability plan, for participation in eligible programs and activities, and for good conduct and obedience to institutional rules as designated by the commissioner, provided (1) good conduct and obedience to institutional rules alone shall not entitle an inmate to such credit, and (2) the commissioner or the commissioner's designee may, in his or her discretion, cause the loss of all or any portion of such earned risk reduction credit for any act of misconduct or insubordination or refusal to conform to recommended programs or activities or institutional rules occurring at any time during the service of the sentence or for other good cause. If an inmate has not earned sufficient risk reduction credit at the time the commissioner or the commissioner's designee orders the loss of all or a portion of earned credit, such loss shall be deducted from any credit earned by such inmate in the future.

(c) The award of risk reduction credit earned for conduct occurring prior to July 1, 2011, shall be phased in consistent with public safety, risk reduction, administrative purposes and sound correctional practice, at the discretion of the commissioner, but shall be completed not later than July 1, 2012.

(d) Any credit earned under this section may only be earned during the period of time that the inmate is sentenced to a term of imprisonment and committed to the custody of the commissioner and may not be transferred or applied to a subsequent term of imprisonment. In no event shall any credit earned under this section be applied by the commissioner so as to reduce a mandatory minimum term of imprisonment such inmate is required to serve by statute.

(e) The commissioner shall adopt policies and procedures to determine the amount of credit an inmate may earn toward a reduction in his or her sentence and to phase in the awarding of retroactive credit authorized by subsection (c) of this section.

Sec. 23. Section 18-100c of the general statutes is repealed and the following is substituted in lieu thereof (Effective July 1, 2011):

A person convicted of a crime who is incarcerated on or after July 1, 1993, who received a definite sentence of two years or less, and who has been confined under such sentence for not less than one-half of the sentence imposed by the court, less such time as may have been earned under the provisions of section 18-7, 18-7a, 18-98a, 18-98b or 18-98d or less any risk reduction credit earned under the provisions of section 22 of this act, may be released pursuant to subsection (e) of section 18-100 or to any other community correction program approved by the Commissioner of Correction.

Sec. 24. Section 18-100d of the general statutes is repealed and the following is substituted in lieu thereof (Effective July 1, 2011):

Notwithstanding any other provision of the general statutes, any person convicted of a crime committed on or after October 1, 1994, shall be subject to supervision by personnel of the Department of Correction until the expiration of the maximum term or terms for which such person was sentenced less any risk reduction credit earned under the provisions of section 22 of this act.

Sec. 25. Section 54-125a of the general statutes is repealed and the following is substituted in lieu thereof (Effective July 1, 2011):

(a) A person convicted of one or more crimes who is incarcerated on or after October 1, 1990, who received a definite sentence or aggregate sentence of more than two years, and who has been confined under such sentence or sentences for not less than one-half of the aggregate sentence less any risk reduction credit earned under the provisions of section 22 of this act or one-half of the most recent sentence imposed by the court less any risk reduction credit earned under the provisions of section 22 of this act, whichever is greater, may be allowed to go at large on parole in the discretion of the panel of the Board of Pardons and Paroles for the institution in which the person is confined, if (1) it appears from all available information, including any reports from the Commissioner of Correction that the panel may require, that there is reasonable probability that such inmate will live and remain at liberty without violating the law, and (2) such release is not incompatible with the welfare of society. At the discretion of the panel, and under the terms and conditions as may be prescribed by the panel including requiring the parolee to submit personal reports, the parolee shall be allowed to return to the parolee's home or to reside in a residential community center, or to go elsewhere. The parolee shall, while on parole, remain under the jurisdiction of the board until the expiration of the maximum term or terms for which the parolee was sentenced less any risk reduction credit earned under the provisions of section 22 of this act. Any parolee released on the condition that the parolee reside in a residential community center may be required to contribute to the cost incidental to such residence. Each order of parole shall fix the limits of the parolee's residence, which may be changed in the discretion of the board and the Commissioner of Correction. Within three weeks after the commitment of each person sentenced to more than two years, the state's attorney for the judicial district shall send to the Board of Pardons and Paroles the record, if any, of such person.

(b) (1) No person convicted of any of the following offenses, which was committed on or after July 1, 1981, shall be eligible for parole under subsection (a) of this section: Capital felony, as provided in section 53a-54b, felony murder, as provided in section 53a-54c, arson murder, as provided in section 53a-54d, murder, as provided in section 53a-54a, or aggravated sexual assault in the first degree, as provided in section 53a-70a. (2) A person convicted of (A) a violation of section 53a-100aa or 53a-102, or (B) an offense, other than an offense specified in subdivision (1) of this subsection, where the underlying facts and circumstances of the offense involve the use, attempted use or threatened use of physical force against another person shall be ineligible for parole under subsection (a) of this section until such person has served not less than eighty-five per cent of the definite sentence imposed less any risk reduction credit earned under the provisions of section 22 of this act.

(c) The Board of Pardons and Paroles shall, not later than July 1, 1996, adopt regulations in accordance with chapter 54 to ensure that a person convicted of an offense described in subdivision (2) of subsection (b) of this section is not released on parole until such person has served eighty-five per cent of the definite sentence imposed by the court less any risk reduction credit earned under the provisions of section 22 of this act. Such regulations shall include guidelines and procedures for classifying a person as a violent offender that are not limited to a consideration of the elements of the offense or offenses for which such person was convicted.

(d) The Board of Pardons and Paroles shall hold a hearing to determine the suitability for parole release of any person whose eligibility for parole release is not subject to the provisions of subsection (b) of this section upon completion by such person of seventy-five per cent of such person's definite or aggregate sentence less any risk reduction credit earned under the provisions of section 22 of this act. An employee of the board or, if deemed necessary by the chairperson, a panel of the board shall reassess the suitability for parole release of such person based on the following standards: (1) Whether there is reasonable probability that such person will live and remain at liberty without violating the law, and (2) whether the benefits to such person and society that would result from such person's release to community supervision substantially outweigh the benefits to such person and society that would result from such person's continued incarceration. After hearing, if the board determines that continued confinement is necessary, it shall articulate for the record the specific reasons why such person and the public would not benefit from such person serving a period of parole supervision while transitioning from incarceration to the community. The decision of the board under this subsection shall not be subject to appeal.

(e) The Board of Pardons and Paroles shall hold a hearing to determine the suitability for parole release of any person whose eligibility for parole release is subject to the provisions of subdivision (2) of subsection (b) of this section upon completion by such person of eighty-five per cent of such person's definite or aggregate sentence less any risk reduction credit earned under the provisions of section 22 of this act. An employee of the board or, if deemed necessary by the chairperson, a panel of the board shall assess the suitability for parole release of such person based on the following standards: (1) Whether there is reasonable probability that such person will live and remain at liberty without violating the law, and (2) whether the benefits to such person and society that would result from such person's release to community supervision substantially outweigh the benefits to such person and society that would result from such person's continued incarceration.

I went to the CT DOC website and it says Earned Risk Reduction Credits click on that and it tells you

" The Connecticut Legislature, in its 2011 session has approved a program, which provides for Earned Risk Reduction Credits that inmates may earn for compliance with programmatic participation, as well for accompanying good behavior.
Inmates may earn up to a maximum of five days a month off of their sentence. These credits may also be revoked for non-compliance with programmatic requirements or behavioral misconduct.

The program applies to inmates sentenced to a term of imprisonment for a crime committed on or after October 1, 1994.
Credits will begin to be applied starting on October 1, 2011.

The Department of Correction is in the process of drafting the policy and procedures for the implementation of this program.

PLEASE NOTE: At this point in time, we cannot tell you if a particular inmate may be eligible.

This is the language outlining the program that is contained in House Bill No. 6650.

Further information will be posted as it becomes available."


hope this helped a little.

I spoke today with one of my friends from prison. He tells me that the Unit Counselors at MacDougal are being trained on how the new system will work. That is forward progress, but I suspect it will be some time before people start being released on good time. Remember the original bill allowed DOC almost a year to put the program in place. But - any steps forward are way, way better than none.

I called the DOC last week and spoke to the commisioners assistant who transferred me to someone in Internal Affairs for the DOC. He explained to me that the software for the program is being created and everything should be in place and as of October 1st. He also told me that by September 1st my husband will have spoken to a counselor. The counselor for his dorm has been gone for more than a month supposedly being trained...... I hope something happens and fast because with economy being sooooo bad it is really hurting families who need the extra income to survive.....

Default It Is Moving...

I've spoken with a couple of my friends still in prison (Osborn, Carl Robinson, and Brooklyn). Some of them have been spoken to and some have not. But, the general feel is that everything is moving forward. The biggest headache for everyone concerned is that there will be a backlog of people who have served the time, but can't get out while waiting for parole/probation officers. It will not effect those at EOS with no parole/probation, but those who do have that will get caught in a bottleneck. Hopefully the state is ramping up hiring POs. No matter what, it is a BIG step forward.

I called the DOC again yesterday and the woman that I spoke to was less than friendly... She didnt really want to give any information other than something will start to happen in the fall. My friends parole officer said the DOC is going to try to get the parolees their good time first which would boot them off parole to free up the parole or probation officers. Who knows.....

The notice on CT DOC website says they'll start crediting good time as of October 1st, which coincides with what they're getting told inside.

Enfield is scheduled to close soon so it makes sense that they start utilizing the time & staff before they are shuffled around...

According to Brian Garnett with the DOC the exactness of this statue is still being worked on as to who is entitled to this.

Enfield has moved inmates to Osborn. If your guy is on parole or probation violation the he is signing TS paperwork. However, TS does not get granted so easily. It all depends on how much time is left on the sentence, and their OPA requirements. Some haven't even doen that due to thier counselors,. So now the counselors are rushing to get it done for October 1. Good Luck all. My guy is in there for a DUI and risk of injury to minor child.. He has 14 more months to go.

From what my husband said they were handing out papers pertaining to good time but those papers stated what programs they took or needed to take to be eligible for the good time credits. I spoke to Brian Garnett last week and he said that they are working on implementing the program and it will start October 1. My husband is also in for DWI and I am concerned about when those offenders will be released on a bracelet. Anyone with anymore info please post!

you are right Jess... My man told me last night that he received his paperwork which outlined how much time he served already, how much he has left, the calculations on how the good time credits are to be applied... it also informed him on which programs he already has taken that count towards receiving the credits and which ones still need to be taken... the ball has definitely started rolling.. Good Luck Ladies!

One of my friends at MacDougall signed his paperwork last week. But he was told that those who are EOS or have a parole date granted will be eligible first. The question still remains as to whether there are enough POs out here to handle the backlog.

my honey in Osborn said they added more onto oap's and the early risk reduction credit is being pushed to dec 1, now. Why are they adding to the OAP's now? His lawyer was supposed to go to the porsecutor back in July to ask if he can put in for a modifaction and bring it to the judge.. Here it is September and he still hasn't done anything..The system has set a date for October 1st and have gotten the inmates and family excited and now that it is getting closer they are changing the dates and guidelines.. Not fair or ethical to all of us..

Eveyone is confused and has no clue waht is going on. It is suppose to happen on 10/1/11 and last till 7/2012. But they are now accorning to my guy making up new OAP's and if you refuse anything you will loose out on credit. My man finished is OAP in June and was told by his counselor that there were no other programs for him to complete now he is assisnged a new OAP with a program that he must do that he completed 20 years ago when he was incarcerated, and he is not even incarcerated for that now. I think we should all send emails, letters or even calls to demand what is going on with the RREC and get our loved ones help.
Also is anyones loved one at Enfield and now at Osborn?

there is so much confusion going on now. this is what I received from Brian Garnett.
"As I have stated, this is a process involving 17,800 offenders. Three months to get it off the ground is not bad. The offender who are in non traditional housing areas are primarily pre-trial offenders from our usual seasonal spike. This should dissipate in the next couple of months."

The thing is no one knows anything and did nothing while they were waiting to see if they all had jobs... We were hoping he would be home at the end of the year..
