    Lawyer agrees

    Answered . RRRI (good time for certain eligible state inmates) went into effect for those inmates sentenced at the end of November 2008. So it depends when your husband was sentenced. If it was after that date the court should have addressed it at the time of sentencing by setting a RRRI minimum date. There is no guarantee an inmate will get released early they have to complete the required programming while in DOC custody.

    Answered . I agree with attorney Katzman. The issue of RRRI eligibilty has to be addressed at sentencing the offense has to be an eligible offense.
