A 1244 is where the state prison time is allowed to run in the local jail, usually because a state jail felony has been reduced to a misdemeanor
ofr purposes of sentencing. There isn't much you can do about this because there is nothing that can make a DA offer it. Any complaints
about the lawyer or their performace have to be taken up with the lawyer or the State Bar, although you should try the lawyer first. The DAs rarely offer 1244s because for budget reasons they woudl rather have the defendant in a state jail rather than the local jail.
The amount of time a prisoner serves of their sentence
can vary from month to month. There is no set formula and no way to tell what it will be in a few months. A few years ago people were doing 1 month for every year they were sentenced to, unless it was a DWI or aggravated charge. The last I heard it was 3 for 1, but that was just talk from jailers and inmates. No state agency will confirm the actual numbers.
