Generally, the dates posted on the website are accurate. Having said that, with LA County jail overcrowding, many times inmates are released before their release date. Since this was not a violent crime, it is very possible that he will be released early. And if the 18 days credit are the actual time he served, he will also get 1 day good time/work time for each day served.
Yes, the dates are accurate. The problem is that is a moving target. Depending on overcrowding conditions the Sheriff's Department may change the date. The inmates behavior may also have an impact.
It's the best you can do...........check often. Subject to change without notice.

The date on the LA sheriff's website is the date of release without early release due to over-crowding factors. I does take into account the anticipated good time/work time credits, though
