The best way to find out why he has not received his jail credit is to contact the court
in which he was sentenced. It is best to actually GO THE COURT IN PERSON.
You can ask to review the file. There should be a Disposition of Sentence
. On the disposition, it should show the jail credit that the judge allowed your husband. If the jail credit is on the Disposition, then the jail has failed to transfer the credit to your husband's file. You can ask to speak to the Court Administrator regarding the problem. The court can fax the Disposition to the jail and ask that his jail credit be corrected.
If the Disposition does NOT show that the judge gave your husband 108 days jail credit, then your husband needs to prepare a Writ of Habeas Corpus (forms available at the jail). That means that your husband is asking to be brought to the Court. In his Writ, he can explain that the judge gave him credit for 108 days served, but that the jail has no record of that disposition. He then must ask that he be given the 108 days credit, and ask that a corrected disposition be sent to the jail.
