Alabama Department of CorrectionsThe Dept of Corrections has just made a policy for all the inmates that have been convicted of Manslaughter! The inmates have always received good time in earning class 1. Because a death occurred we have always believed they should never be in a level higher than earning class 2.

A DA challenged their previous policy and as of last week they changed the policy. What does this mean? It will add about 15 months to the sentence of those convicted of manslaughter. Instead of EOS at 4 yrs 7 months and 22 days, they will have to serve about 15 months more. This is a great day for victims in Alabama!

Update!

A petition for writ of habeas corpus, challenging recalculation by Department of Corrections of good time credits for manslaughter has been filed by an inmate.  The ruling by the Alabama Court of Criminal Appeals has not yet published their rulings.
