They don't mean to indicate a petition in that sense, but rather that when an inmate qualifies for a review or hearing, any portion of that process that the inmate participates in is considered asking (or petitioning) the board for early release.

But again, this applies to inmates in state custody. County held inmates are remanded to local jurisdiction.

As this attorney's web site may have said "Petition for early release". You are inquiring about someone who is doing a sentence under Realignment . Therefor this person is not the responsibility of CDCR They are now the responsibility of the county who is directing their sentence. There for they could be released from county at anytime do to overcrowding if the county choose to do so. Which was a major complaint of Realignment when it first started . The jails were over crowed and people with sentencing under realignment were being released when they did only 90 days of a two years sentence. Now that Prop.47 passed the county jails now have more room to hold sentenced personal longer. Any one doing a realignment it would be up to the county to do any kind of early release of any said individual.
We must also remember that staff at the facilities will run with rumor just like inmates will. May I suggest hat you do more in depth research on this matter but use the term realignment when seeking information on early release. For now Prop.57 will be of no use to someone doing a realignment sentence.

Future_Lawyer I went and pulled up some information on sentencing under Realignment. I pulled this information from
Criminal Justice Realignment Frequently Asked Questions In the section
A. SENTENCING OF CRIMES UNDER SECTION 1170(h). of this booklet read through answers 6-11. I think you will then have a better understanding how sentencing works for matters that go to county jail instead of state prison There is 60 pages of Frequently Asked Questions, I only listed answers that I think would help you understand sentencing.
I overlooked something you may also like to review FELONY SENTENCING AFTER REALIGNMENT May 2017 I didn't review much of the information in this booklet. It is a large booklet, but I did a quick read on early release on page 30 -36 of the booklet. For a clear point of view from the court you may want to review the material any way.

Okay i have another question for the counselors here. My brother goes to his annual review hearing next month. He has a P-code, or VIO. Hes currently at a hard 19. Can his counselors remove his P-code or VIO at that time? Or is there more to it, process wise? Thanks in advance!

From what I understand there is a process for removing the "hard" part of their classification. They are doing overrides for levels now and it's not impossible for a Level 4 on paper to be housed in a lower level. It's merit based, but I do not know if there is a specific process for getting it. I believe it has to be a recommendation from the counselor so unless someone else comes along and gives you more specific advice, really encourage your brother to speak up and request to have the VIO removed so he can drop to a Level 1. If he's got a good amount of clean time and is programming well, he has a real shot!

Let us know how it goes.

Ha! My apologies for the poorly worded advice. Basically what I meant to say was I don't know if there's a specific form or formal process, I think the inmate has to request consideration at their hearing and see where that goes. (fibromyalgia brain fog is a real kick)

Here is the one that I have been using at work. to give out estimates on release Good Conduct Credits Table (GCC): It is the same chart that Prison Law gives in this booklet
INFORMATION ON PROPOSITION 57 (Updated December 14, 2017) If it is something else I will have to dig through my crap a little deeper

Are you referring the spreadsheet gvalliant made for us? I'm not sure how far back in the thread it is, but it's definitely buried. You might try giving him a PM and see if he can repost.

Saw your comments this morning. I fiddled with spreadsheet a few times since that posting then haven't looked at it since early summer. CDCR has changed regulations a few times since the summer and their changes will result in:

NOTHING.....

Given that sad fact, I stripped it down this morning. The 3 release dates you care about with prop 57 at the bottom of the page are:

1) Maximum Adjusted Release Date - that's worst case for someone with more write ups then credits.

2) EPRD with Good Conduct Credit - that's more or less what CDCR will post on website (spreadsheet doesn't factor Fire Camp in that date while CDCR website does factor Fire Camp)

3) Release with Fire and Future Credit - that's how much better inmate "could do" with new credits like education, new enhanced milestones (and Fire Camp) if they work at it. Don't get too optimistic with planning because inmates really, really have to work at it to earn them, IMO.
