    Answered . If you are asking about Florida State prison sentences then the answer is that if you behave in prison, and if you are not serving a minimum-mandatory sentence, then you will serve 85%.

    If you are asking about any State other than Florida then you should repost your question with a different location.

    Unlike the FL-DOC, local jails operate on municipal rules and are not standardized throughout the State. You can find out the gain time for any particular institution (state, local or even federal) by doing a Google search for the specific facility and either reading the information online or contacting them directly and asking.

    For example, the Ft. Pierce jail's website is: http://www.stluciesheriff.com/disclaimer.php

    I hope that I have been helpful in answering your question.
