Until the 1970s, most states provided inmates with a mechanism for early release at the discretion of a parole board under an indeterminate sentencing model. “Good time” was used as a mechanism for early release for determinate sentencing whereby inmates were eligible for a day for a day reduction in their sentences. Since that time, determinate sentencing increasingly gained dominance until only very recently, when some states have started to question whether they should revert back to an indeterminate model. For this assignment, compare each sentencing model and provide examples of both.
