Vermont Proposed Rule: 20E15 AGENCY: Agency of Human Services, Department of Corrections CONCISE SUMMARY: This Rule reinstitutes an Earned Good Time (EGT) program for Vermont’s Department of Corrections’ incarcerated and furloughed offenders. Offenders on probation, parole, earning Work Camp Good Time and serving life sentences without parole are ineligible. For each month eligible incarcerated or furloughed offenders are “not adjudicated of a major disciplinary rule violation” and are “not reincarcerated from the community for a violation of release conditions” (but for no-fault housing loss), they will be awarded up to seven (7) days of Earned Good Time credit toward their minimum and maximum sentence. Offenders receiving day- for-day inpatient treatment post adjudication are ineligible during their treatment. The Department is obligated to record monthly EGT-related changes to offenders’ sentences, notify offenders of these changes at least every ninety days, notify victims of record of the program at its outset, and maintain a system where victims can procure relevant information as necessary.
