After an inmate is sentenced, who calculates the release date?
The Court Officers determine release dates pursuant to the guidelines set forth by the Superior, District, and Municipal Court Judges. "Good time" is calculated at 1/6 of the total time sentenced. ALL Good Time is pre-calculated into an inmate's release date with the assumption that they will not have any serious institutional behavior issues.
"Extra Good Time" can be earned by signing up and being selected for "Inmate Worker" jobs at the discretion of jail staff. If an inmate is selected for Inmate Worker, that inmate will receive a NEW release date with the Extra Good Time calculated into the release date. If the inmate self-removes, or is punitively removed from Extra Good Time status, that inmate will give up any Extra Good Time from that point forward. They will then again receive a new and updated release date.
