Good Time Law may see man's time in prison reduced

Nebraska residents who find themselves facing criminal charges including illegal drugs or controlled substances no doubt end up with many questions about how the judicial and criminal justice system actually works. Many reports give details about how plea bargains may adjust a final charge or set of penalties and how defendants may often be allowed to get out of prison or jail before their full sentences have been served. How these things happen are among the items that newly arrested defendants will want to learn.

An example of this type of situation can be seen in the case of a man who was arrested a week or two before Christmas last year. Reports suggest that the man was pulled over during a traffic stop yet it did not necessarily seem like a standard traffic stop as it was said to involve not only authorities from a local sherrif's office but also from a special task force for drugs. The man was found to be driving on a revoked license and ultimately found to be in possession of two different substances.

More than 44 grams of pot and more than 23 grams of methamphetamine were located in the man's possession. Ultimately he was convicted on counts of possession with the intent to deliver both drugs. While his sentence could find him spending up to five years behind bars, he may be able to be out of custody within two years under the state's Good Time Law.

After being arrested, Nebraska residents may want to contact an attorney to learn about laws like the Good Time Law that may ultimately impact their futures greatly.
