The credits they earn only apply towards the 15% reduction. correct? Did I really miss something here with Prop.57?

80% of 10 years is 8 years minus county time and credits. Fill me in if I am wrong please. He will do 2-3 years before being considered for parole board hearing correct?


Okay my boyfriend parole date is November 2024 he is for robbery as well so wouldnít my dude date be 8 or 9 years as well. When I called his counselor she said he have to do 9 years and I speak to her last year. So how is it that if someone parole date at 2025 how can it be 8 years when my dude parole date is November 2024 I am lost. I am just asking thatís it

He could have an in-prison charge, he could have write-ups, or the system could be wrong. Take your pick.

I just know when I spoke to his counselor she told me that he have to do 9 years in prison it just not making sense. And I havenít heard from my boyfriend so I canít ask and on top of that his mom is sick.

First thing that needs to be determined is his full sentence with enhancements. If his total term is 10 years @ 80% he would do close to 8 years for a 80% total. If he has more then 10 years the amount of time will increase.

Default Prop 57, Part III, Regulation Implementation (California)

There is no 60% under Prop 57.

Mainline just means they've been put on a regular yard (not reception, SHU, ect). Some people use mainline to mean general population and not protective custody. But typically it just means a regular yard. It doesn't have any affect on the percentage you serve.

As missingdee said, there is no 60% level. There is a 66% but it's for non-violent offenders in fire camp and some min custody inmates.

He's going to hear a lot of theories on how to reduce his time. Usually he's getting it from someone who heard it from someone who heard it fro-- see where I'm going? lol Unless they have it writing, they can point to it in Title 15 (prison regulation bible) or you can find it online from CDCR, it's just a rumor.

My loved one is a violent offender and he maxed out his eprd due to write ups. He hasn’t gotten the 5% credit so he inquired about it and he told me he was told due to maxing out his time he’s not eligible for the 5%. Has anyone else heard this because my understanding was that this credit is from May 1 and on. He maxed out in 2016 and hasn’t gotten in any trouble since

It could be that the added time from his write-ups exceed the 5% he would have otherwise gained through Prop 57. Depending on how many days he's had taken beyond his max date (they don't actually hold him longer but it does count against potential gains from milestones and such) he might not get time off for milestones, either.

Dee technically owed about 3 years of time when she was released due to write-ups (won't get into how or whether that was really justified.) The only good news is, when she came out the gate, that time no longer applied to anything if I read Title 15 correctly.

His best bet is to make sure that he doesn't pick up new charges. As long as he doesn't, even if he gets more write-ups, he will release on his max-out date.

Sorry to have to ask this, but I lost track of what we are waiting for. If my l.o. earns milestone credits (which he should be eligible for), are they automatically going to be counted soon under Prop 57 or are we waiting for something from CDCR? I have read about the so-called waiting period, but I'm not sure exactly what it means or when it will end (if ever). By "automatically", I mean will he get a notice amending his discharge date? He has no writeups and has been in a voc program for about a year and a half. I did see his amended discharge date on the CDCR site after they changed the 85% to 80%. But knowing milestone credits is very important at this point. Thanks.

Any milestones he has earned after the Aug 1 date will be calculated into his time and show at his annual committee. Some counselors are notifying inmates of credits as they are earned, on a rolling basis if you will, but not all. But for sure at the time of his annual all earned credits from Aug 1 forward should be reflected in his calculation.

Hello,

I'm sorry if I'm posting this in the wrong thread. (Move if needed) I have a question.
My husband called me last night saying that he got a letter saying that today, he would be getting an approved visit from a Parole Board Lawyer. Does anyone know why he would be visiting him? He's not due for release for another 2-3 years. I mean is that a good sign of him possibly coming home sooner? He did recently file with the courts for re-sentencing.

Thank you in advance.

Resentencing wouldn't involve the parole board so unless they classified the attorney wrong I'm doubting it would have anything to do with it.

Why did he apply for resentencing? What were the grounds? If it has to do with a gun enhancement, note two things. 1.) a judge is not obligated to resentence based on a gun enhancement, and 2.) a judge can impose a HIGHER sentence than they originally pronounced during a resentencing hearing. If he plead out, he throws away the benefit of the plea bargain in the process and is literally at the mercy of the court (and the court doesn't have to show mercy.)

Without knowing what his charges are, it'd be impossible to say if the lawyer has anything to do with Prop 57. Frankly, we'd need more information to even wager a guess at what's going on. If you have a little more background information available that might be useful. However, as there is a chance that this is Prop 57 related (the part about parole makes it potentially relevant,) I think this may be the best thread for the question, at least for now. If more information makes it clear that there's something else going on we can always move the posts on this topic if necessary later.

The changes to the sections on gun enhancements that were changed by SB620.Do not go in to effect into Jan. 2018. Don't see where this would even come in to play for this attorney visit. Like it was said with the limited information being given by the OP. I am not going to try and read any tea leaves on why this attorney is coming to see the inmates.
Since the OP did say the inmate did file for resentencing. This could be the attorney representing him on this subject There is a error on the duct On the other hand the inmate should have received some type of information from his attorney introducing her/himself , That they are the attorney on record for this matter.
