Federal law requires a person to serve approximately 85% of their sentence
, the remaining 15% being considered a form of gain time. Similarly, Florida law has an 85% requirement.
You husband was sentenced to 1 year plus 2 years for a total of 3 years, or 36 months.. If he gets the gain time, he would complete his sentence in about 30 and a half months. That would mean he sould have been subject to release around July of this year.
So, something isn't adding up. While it is rare, it is possible he didn't get any or all of his gain time. If so, he'd be eligible for release between now and January 2010.
