My boyfriend is in Jail and he has to serve 365 days in the county jail but he could get released early for good time.
Each county jail has its own rules for calculating good time, but the general rule is that for each day of good time someone "earns" his or her jail time is reduced by one day. Jails allow people to earn good time for various things such as working, taking classes, or simply avoiding any fights with the guards or other inmates.
Every answer is based on the facts given. Additional information or facts could change the answer. This answer does not create an attorney-client relationship.
The jail automatically calculates the good time credit and adjusts an inmates release date. He doesn't need to apply or anything like that.
