Under want circumstances are you talking about? See Penal Code section 4019 if prisoner is serving time for probation. [he gets 2 days of credits -one for work and 1 for good behavior- for every four days in custody or 1/3] If sentenced to county jail prison under AB109 realignment, prisoner is serving at 1/2 tiime.

No, they are not moving to 1/3 time. The credits that a person gets depends on the date of the crime. If the offense was committed after 10/1/11 or between 1/25/10 and 9/28/10, then it is half time. Otherwise, it is 1/3 time.
Should be half time, depending on the date of the offense. See previous answer above.
