I'm looking at a max sentence of 1 year in San Diego County jail on a felony strike sex offense. I have no prior criminal record of any kind. Is there a possibility of 50% or because it's a strike will it be 85%?
Also, does anyone know what the possibility of early release is due to overcrowding?
If it is guaranteed you are getting probation, as opposed to being sentenced to prison, you will serve your time in county jail at 50%. Whether or not you are granted alternatives to custody (i.e. work furlough, CPAC, county parole) will be determined on or after sentencing.
Are you sure it's a strike because that's a misdemeanor maximum. There are some misdemeanor strike but very few. If it is a serious strike and you are being put on probation it would be 50%. Violent strikers do 85%. I think you're off in your calculations and you should double check with your lawyer.
In order to give an answer it is necessary for you to state all the offenses and special allegations of which you were convicted. You should ask this question of the lawyer who represented you at the time of your conviction. I would expect that you will get credits at the same percentage as the percentage of credit given to you for preconviction time.
We cannot answer that question without knowing more specifics about your case. Please do not post specifics about your case on the internet. These are questions you should direct to whoever is representing you.
