  • An adjective that describes release based on good behavior during incarceration. In most jurisdictions, an inmate earns his or her conditional release after serving two thirds of his or her maximum sentence. Inmates can lose good-time credits for disciplinary infractions, and those with a maximum sentence of life are not eligible. Conditions apply to the release and, if violated, can result in parole revocation.
