Because of the complexities of how jail credit is computed and applied, inmates are often not credited with time spent in pretrial confinement. Attorneys can obtain court documents and determine whether credit has been applied, and if it has not, work with the district attorney's office and clerk of court to correct any omissions. Project time commitment will be between three and seven hours per week.
Each project requires between three and seven hours.
