Good time is granted at the beginning of the sentence and can only get lessened if the inmate gets into trouble and has it taken away. If you are a federal inmate, there is a program that can take one year off their sentence if they qualify. It is called RDAP - the inmate would need to have a pre-existing drug or alcohol issue prior to incarceration.

Yes, the 85% is in effect and there isn't anything you can do to change that. There are some programs in other states that might shave off a few months, but we are not privy to any for the Mississippi Department of Corrections.

All inmates receive "good time credits" when they begin their sentence. Usually, that is 15% and that is the most it can be, it can only lessen by bad behavior. The one way for early release is if the inmate has information about another crime or criminal enterprise that would lead to the prosecution and conviction of another. THAT is also called snitching (not recommended) and it could carry repercussions on the yard, but the weak-minded always look for a short cut.

Inmates are credited for time that is spend in custody, whether it is for an hour in another county, that counts as "one day served". Therefore, the 90 days spent somewhere will definitely count towards his release date calculation

If he has a release date, that is the outdate - unless he does something untoward that causes him to get jacked-up for more time. Once the release date is posted, it would include any good time accrued.

The judge has nothing to do with the allocation of good time. The good time credits are set by the State's Justice Department. If the program you speak of offers a sentence reduction for successful completion, tit doesnt matter what the judge wants, they hold zero power over the Department of Corrections as they follow their internal procedures. I know this sounds harsh, but a 16-month sentence is a joke compared to the time we've all done - he'll be fine

Unfortunately, there are no programs for early release for sex offender in the state of Maine. There are mandatory programs that the inmate must complete but none leads to a shortening of the sentence. Then there is the long probation period following release along with mandatory registration in the Sex Offender Registry that remains on their record forever. Here is a link to the ME DOC pdf that explains their program.

That is a rumor that will never come to fruition. There has not been parole in the federal system for over 25 years and it's not coming back anytime soon with the current administration. Incarceration is big business and it makes big money. Every year that i was in the federal system, there were rumors of how they were going to offer early release to first-time, non-violent offenders because of "overcrowding" or other reasons. None of them came close.

The BOP release date is accurate. Once the inmate gets approved for RDAP, it will change the release date. It takes about 2-3 months for the change to appear on their website. The good time credit of 15% is included in the release date and as long as the inmate steers clear of incident reports, that amount will stay with them to the door.  On 78 months, with good time there are 66.3 months to serve. If they get
