Customer Question

Is there any chance a prisoner can get released earlier than there date of release, if there is a job waiting for him. He was sentence to san quentin on june 21 2011 and his release date is dec 19 2012. He is considered a level 1 inmate and is working while he is inside. He is also trying to take college courses to be released 6 weeks earlier. He is also going to AA meetings as he was convicted of a DUI. Because I called the police and they were sent to my home they put domestic charges ontop of the conviction. Which was a false charge however he took a plea as a jury trial was going cost $6000 more and his attorney adviced him to take the plea.

When you say his "release date" do you mean that is when he is totally "off papers?" Did he get considered for parole?

Customer :

He was sentence to 3 yrs. however his release date is dec 19 2011.

dkennedy :

Are you talking about parole? If not, did he get denied parole?
