Neb. officials propose tougher good-time penalties for inmates

Proposals would double the amount of good time an inmate could lose for minor as well as serious infractions committed while in prison

LINCOLN — Amid complaints that the state has released violent offenders, the Department of Corrections on Monday proposed tougher rules for taking away good time from inmates who break the rules while incarcerated.

The proposals would double the amount of good time an inmate could lose for minor as well as serious infractions committed while in prison.

For instance, serious assaults could result in an inmate forfeiting as much as two years' worth of good time. The current penalty provides for the loss of up to one year of good time.
