Two versions of the Prison Sentence Calculator will be released. The smaller calculator simply determines good time credit earned in the federal and state prison system. The larger iPhone calculator will be primarily a Federal Guidelines Sentence Calculator offering more information as it pertains to federal charges and fines.
While the smaller iPhone app for the Prison Sentence Calculator will be available at no cost the larger federal version is still being considered at no cost but the developers are not sure at this time. Although, the older flash style calculator is still in use and available at no cost on http://www.JailGuide.com/
When asked about the delay in the release of the iPhone app the sites owner, Peter Maxwell stated that H.R. 1475 - Federal Prison Work Incentive Act which is still sitting in the house (and will probably be lame ducked) will make a large difference in how the prison sentence calculator operates. “If HR 1475 is instituted, hopefully, this will change the algorithm considerably”

JailGuide.com is the premiere website for inmates, soon to be inmates, their families and the victims of crime. The site has the largest and most comprehensive database of jails and prisons in the world. Penal facility listings are available for the U.S., as well as Africa, Asia, Australia, Europe, Canada, the Caribbean and Mexico. An inmate search can be accomplished quickly and easily.
Inmates are often transferred to other facilities with little or no warning, and no way to advise their families of the relocation. The site helps families monitor and keep track of friends and family who are incarcerated. The website is also a welcome tool for crime victims, providing them with an easy means of knowing where criminals are located and when they’re going to be released.
In addition to the inmate search and earned good time calculator, Jail Guide provides a wide array of crucial information for inmates and their families. The site explains prison security levels, federal sentencing guidelines, and how to send money to an inmate. Also explored is Residential Drug Abuse Programs (RDAP), sending mail to inmates and visitation rules at different facilities. The site contains tools, utilities, answers, videos and visitor information on how prisons work and how to navigate such unknown territory.
Of special interest is the guide, “How to Survive in Prison and Jail.” This 144-page survival manual explains to those new to the jail system what to do and what not to do. Written by a former inmate for inmates, the guide explores all facets of the system. Topics include how not to be a victim and who to avoid, and unravels the maze of written – and unwritten – rules for inmates all the way to being paroled and staying out. The latter hopes of this book is to reduce recidivism. The jail guide is only available as a digital download from the website.
Jail Guide offers information that can’t be found anywhere else. The website provides valuable information for inmates and families on how to navigate the mysteries of the penal system and offers victims a means of keeping track of those who have injured them.
