Determining release dates has historically been a manual process utilizing Excel spreadsheets or calendars. Because of the many complexities in these determinations, including how specific agencies calculate good time and credit time, only select staff members were qualified to calculate release dates. This resulted in delays, frustrations, and inaccuracies. equivant Corrections’ Sentence Calculator solves these challenges.

Our Sentence Calculator, powered by the Northpointe Suite, allows agencies to determine how good time and credit time are calculated.
