A jail sentence of 180 days can seem like a long and harsh sentence to a defendant in a criminal case. Years ago a criminal defendant was required to complete 2/3 of their jail sentence. With realignment and new laws on criminal sentencing guidelines, a 180 day jail sentence can mean different things in different counties. For example, it is not unusual for a defendant to do 10% or less in L.A. County jails. In Orange, Riverside and Ventura County a 180 day sentence may mean 90 actual days in custody. The actual sentence may depend on a number of factors, including the type of offense, criminal history and current housing conditions in the respective jail.
