    Default 65% Reduction Of Time Served For Arizona Inmates

    Has anyone heard of a potential 65% reduction of time served for Arizona inmates. I have an pen pal in Arizona state prison and she asked me about it. From everything I have been able to ascertain it is strictly a rumor with no foundation in fact. Also, If something like this was to occur I would imagine it would apply to those who are incarcerated for minor offenses whereas she committed armed robbery.

    Any information about this would be appreciated.

    Looking online it looks more like it was a bill before the State which would give an ability for inmates to get the potential for early release after they have served 65% of their sentence. This goes back several years when it was, or maybe still is, 85%. Or that is how I read it.

    Middle Ground Prison Reform is a useful site if you have an LO in Arizona. This subject is actually listed in their newly updated ‘Rumor Control’ section. My man had heard the rumour and at the time I hadn’t. He’s doing 25 to Life so unfortunately the pin a lot of hope on these things. I’ve researched it after and it seems unlikely that this is going to happen anytime soon...
