Allows certain inmates to be granted a merit time allowance; allows inmates who
are able to prove that they were subjected to substantial physical, sexual or
psychological abuse, that the abuse was inflicted by a member of their same
family or household or a member of the person's immediate family, and that the
abuse was a substantial factor in causing them to commit the crime to be
eligible to earn merit time in the amount of one-third off either their minimum
sentence (if inmate has an indeterminate sentence) or their flat sentence;
allows such inmates to be eligible for presumptive release; expands the
criteria that a person in custody of the department of correctional services
may meet in order to earn merit time.
