  • not exactly sure how it works, but it seems like people often get out early do to over crowding....

  • i don't understand it either but i have heard of it and they are just overcrowded in the prisons that they have thought of whats called the early release system. for every 6-9 months of your sentence time they give you like 3 months early release i would say but i don't know for sure as it might vary per state but that he would be out sometime late next yr or early of 2012. i don't have all the details so i can't say for sure. sorry i guess i didn't really help. if he is to be release nov of 2012 then i would say that 6-9 months early of nov.

  • Can't you write him or vist him? It seems like they would have to let him get letters and send letters.

    This is a good time to consider if you want to stay with this man. Do you want to stay with a man and do you want your children living with a man that has had drug problems and who is violent?

  • I would try talking to his attorney. Not only does the attorney have a better idea what is going on, but he/she can answer all of your questions.

  • more than likely he will do 80% of that time, only if he has good behavior and works in there... on another note, i have been with men like that years ago, and they don't change unless he gets help like a program once he is out.. they ALLLLLL SAY their going to CHANGE while they are in there, but once their are out here in the real world temptation is around every corner. Battery with a weapon is a serious charge, has this guy been locked up before? what for? how long? is he a repeated offender? Get smart and do your research on him.. i bet once you start getting letters he is going to start asking for stuff, money, stationary, the box with a buch of stuff in it.. cigs to sale... they run game in there and if you don't beleive i will scan some letters i kept from someone and show you the proof.. i learned my lesson years ago.. no more drug addict men and no more convicts!

  • Yes i did... he was no good for me or our son at that time in his life.. i don't put up with drugs and viloence.. BUT i did write, visit with our son and send photos.. but maybe your situation is different. i really wish you the best and your child. i really hope ths guy changes for his kids.. no one wants to see a child without the other parent. Nor loose a love in their life.

  • You can get out early for good behavior but I would not count on that. Why haven't you at least talked on the phone?
