Risk Reduction Earned Credit/DUI
Risk Reduction Earned Credit
The Connecticut Legislature, in its 2011 session has approved a program, which provides for Risk Reduction Earned Credits that inmates may earn for compliance with programmatic participation, as well for accompanying good behavior.
This bill has now been signed into law by Governor Dannel P. Malloy.
Inmates may earn up to a maximum of five days a month off of their sentence. These credits may also be revoked for non-compliance with programmatic requirements or behavioral misconduct.
The program applies to inmates sentenced to a term of imprisonment for a crime committed on or after October 1, 1994.
The process of reviewing offender eligibility for credits and applying them where appropriate began on October 1, 2011 and is ongoing.
Under the statute, the agency has until July 1, 2012 to complete this process.
This is the language outlining the program that is contained in House Bill No. 6650.

DUI- The same legislation created a law which provides the commissioner of corrections with the discretion to allow some offenders convicted of Driving Under the Influence to serve a portion of their sentence under house arrest. The law requires that an advisory committee be convened to develop the policy and procedures for the implementation of this program.
As of mid February, the assessments of eligible DUI offenders have begun and placements are being made in the community.
