In the state of California, can a detention center/ jail/ prison keep an inmate past his/her release date?

Asked 11 months ago - Pacoima, CA

My brother signed a plea bargain to be released 9/10/13 and to this date the detention center does not have a release date for him. They only show he is to do time in state prison. What happens if he is not released on 9/10/13??

    Answered . Credits must be earned and sometimes they are not so if the release date is based upon half time or a portion thereof, the release date may not be accurate. Have your brother contact the authorities to get an accurate release date. Good luck.
