Information regarding people currently incarcerated in detention facilities, work camps, boot camps, halfway houses, jails, prisons etc. is made available as a public service.

All persons are considered innocent until proven guilty.

Disclaimer of Warranties and Accuracy of Data Of the Prison Sentence Calculator:

Prison Sentence Calculator

The Jail Guide Prison Sentence Calculator is for entertainment purposes only. Information regarding the time of total incarceration is, and cannot be, ever accurately calculated. There are other factors involved with a proper calculation of good time credit. Some instances may be loss of good time due to circumstances beyond an inmates control. As well, some offenses do not warrant the total amount of good time as others. For example: Some states reduce the good time credit for murder convictions yet give more credit to those who have simply stolen property, drug offenses or other non violent crime. Other factors include a state or jurisdiction altering the good time credit percentage or rights to that percentage.

Disclaimer of Warranties and Accuracy of Bail Bond Calculator:

The bail bond calculator is for entertainment purposes only... and here is why: Bail bond rates differ from state to state and county to county. We are using 20% for a felony bond and 10% for a misdemeanor bond. We urge you to contact a bail bondsmen in your area for the proper bond amount.
