Heineman Makes Changes to "Good Time" Credit System

Posted: Updated:

Nebraska prisoners who assault someone could give up some of their "good time".

Governor Dave Heineman said he approved a rule change that doubles the amount of credit prisoners could lose for misbehavior.

The change will go into effect on Saturday.

Heineman called on lawmakers to enact reforms that would require violent offenders to earn good time instead of receiving it automatically.
