Parole and “Good Time” for Sentenced Jail Prisoners, Work Assignment and Work Release of Sentenced Jail Prisoners, and 1979 Legislation Affecting Jails

Record #:
The 1979 Session of the General Assembly produced little legislation affecting jails, but established a new procedure with regard to future parole of prisoners serving sentences in local jails. There are also two statutes dealing with the jailer’s authority to deduct time from jail sentences. The statutes refer to “good time” and “gain time” for sentenced jail prisoners.
