Sentence Calculation

Once clients are sentenced by the criminal courts their sentencing details are passed on to the prison. The prison will then use these dates to calculate a release date, a parole eligibility date and a HDC eligibility date.

For obvious reasons it is extremely important that these dates are correct. If you are concerned that this is not the case, it may be hard to resolve this situation yourself and we are here to help.
