      Hi Shareka,

      prisonpath provides information about prisons to inmate’s families, individuals facing prison, and the general public. We do not give legal advice. We would recommend contacting an attorney.

            Hi Shareka

            With the penal system, there can always be difficulties. If there is any problem with the calculation of time, you can always obtain the services of an attorney to help you.
