Would you be so kind as to calculate the time he should be eligible for release. I will give you the dates of incarceration.
FMC BUTNER...April 6th through August 5th.
TERMINAL ISLAND...March 11 to the present. I calculate he has spent 208 days incarcerated. Thank you for helping me. I am confused. The 54 days is confusing me I guess, but he has spent 208 ACTUAL DAYS IN INCARCERATION TOTAL.
I am calculating from the 4 months he spent at Butner, which the judge gave him credit for, and that would be approximately 122 days or you could say 4 x's 30, which would be 120 days, plus 85 to the present, which would equate to either 205 days or 207 days. So....he has actually been incarcerated in two separate time periods, which add up to 207 days. If you add the 54 days, that would equate to 261 days. Where would that leave him?
I'm sorry to bother you again, but if we forget the 54 days, and he has already served 207 days, please tell me when he should be eligible for parole, based on one year and one day. I've already calculated the number of days he has actually spent in prison, which he has been given credit for, not counting the 54 days. I don't mean to seem dense, but you should be able to tell me what the statute states. This should be easy for you.
