In the state of minnesota can I earn good time on a 5 day jail sentence and be released early?
2 Answers from Attorneys
No, in Minnesota "good time" reductions are used where the executed sentence is ten days or more.
Hello. If you want to read the law yourself, see Minnesota Statute 643.29. If you are in need of legal advice, please contact a private attorney. If your finances are difficult, some private attorneys, myself included, will provide you with a reduced fee so that you have attorney help. All the best.
