HiYes, that is about what I had calculated give or take a few days.There are no new laws as they pertain to Good Conduct credits as you asked in your question But hopefully , your son is taking advantage of all programs which also can help reduce his sentenceFor instance, in LA inmates may earn up to 180 days - total - for participating in approved vocational training, adult education or literacy programs or correspondence courses Time Off for Good Behavior/Program Participation The Louisiana Department of Public Safety and Corrections awards diminution of sentence and educational good-time credit in accordance with Louisiana statute. These policies credit an inmate’s sentence with time off for good behavior and allow an offender to earn credit for participation in vocational or educational programs. Credits apply to an inmate’s mandatory parole date. Persons released under diminution of sentence shall be supervised in the same manner and to the same extent as if he or she were released on parole. The supervision shall be for the remainder of the original full term of sentence. Inmates are eligible for good time from the date of their sentence to the department on actual time served in custody and all time in custody prior to receiving their sentence. Prison overcrowding or other factors outside an inmate’s personal conduct do not affect the awarding or revocation of good-time or educational good-time credits. Time computation allows inmates convicted of nonviolent crimes, and who are otherwise eligible to earn good time, to be given the opportunity to earn good time at the rate of 30 days for every 30 days served in the department’s actual custody, in lieu of incentive wages. Nonviolent inmates who opt to earn incentive wages may earn 15 days good time for every 30 days in actual custody. While inmates who opt to earn good time do not receive incentive wages, they are not prohibited from receiving remuneration in a work release program or a certified private sector or prison industry enhancement program.
