My husband has been in prison serving a 25 year sentence, he has served 23 and a half years already, do you know if this law applies to him?
I do not know if it applies to your husband. I do not have enough information.
I do know that with good time, your husband should be out of prison. I do not know what the charges were of which your husband was found guilty, but even if he were to serve 85% of his 25-year sentence, he should have been released after 21.25 years.
Something seems wrong here, but then again, I do not know what the charges were. Law Offices of Theodore Gailan, 36 years of criminal law experience.
Be aware that receiving an answer to any online question does not establish either an attorney/client relationship, and it does not create a relationship of confidentiality.
You need to speak to someone with some more detailed information about his case.
It sounds like the prison system believes that he did something to get his good time revoked. Without more information, it's hard to say if (assuming this is correct) can be challenged.
Normally, I would tell you to go to the lawyer who represented him in the first place, but that was so long ago, that person may no longer be practicing.
Many lawyers offer free consultations. Maybe you should make an appointment with one along with all of your husband's details.
Good luck to you.
