My son has recently been incarcerated. And I was wondering what some things on his paperwork mean? Like projected sent Dsg Dt?

Yes, he can earn good time credit and program credit. He will want to talk to his unit team leader about it. "Projected sentence Beg Dt" should refer to the date his sentence is considered to have begun. It gives him credit for all time served in jail before his sentencing date. I do not know what "Dsg Dt" would mean unless it is for "designation."
This answer is intended to provide general information about the justice system. It does not provide legal advice nor does it create an attorney-client relationship. It does not provide the basis for making decisions about a course of action. Legal advice requires more communication and information than is possible in this format. Many important considerations and factors need to be investigated and discussed before an attorney could give legal advice about this issue. Before making any decisions about a course of action readers are strongly encouraged to contact a lawyer and secure an attorney-client relationship. Readers must also understand that this format does not provide for confidential communication.
