New Way To Determine Jail Sentences
By pr-usa.net
Published: 09/20/2010

JailGuide.com has announced the addition of an all-new prison sentence calculator that utilizes algorithms directly from state and federal prison systems. Along with JailGuide's find an inmate program, the prison sentence calculator can tell you how long that prisoner will be incarcerated and how much good time they may receive toward their sentence.

The JailGuide website is owned and designed by Pete Maxwell, who has built one of the largest federal prison sentence calculators available anywhere online. The prison sentence calculator is for use when calculating sentences in state and federal penal facilities. It’s extremely easy to use, and if visitors do have problems, the site contains a link that will take them to detailed instructions on how to use the prison calculator.

The prison sentence calculator will be making its debut on other sites too. The calculator’s creator is now offering lawyers, bail bondsmen and similar entities the opportunity to embed the calculator on their own websites. They’ll also be able to post their own link within the calculator.

JailGuide is the largest website of its kind to find inmates and is dedicated to helping people remain current on the location of friends and loved ones who have been incarcerated. Prisoners are often transferred from one facility to another with little or no warning and family members are often not notified for security reasons.

    ...actually, the JailGuide.com Prison Sentence Calculator doesn't determine jail sentences per se - what it does is determines the possible release date based on the good time credit percentage. The user would simply choose whether the sentence was state or federal, then enter the date of surrender (if applicable), enter any time served and finally enter the sentence amount. It will then tell them based on the state or federal conviction, how soon they may possibly be released based on good time. The prison sentence calculator was designed to help victims understand how long a person would be incarcerated - but the flip side from the feedback we have been getting is that it's showing inmates (and those headed to prison) that if they do what they are supposed to do while in prison or jail and act right - they'll possibly earn good time credit for early release.
