Eady v. Smith

UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE DISTRICT OF COLUMBIA


August 15, 2007

TIMOTHY EADY, PETITIONER,
v.
STEVEN A. SMITH, RESPONDENT.

The opinion of the court was delivered by: James Robertson United States District Judge

MEMORANDUM

In this habeas corpus action filed in June 2007, petitioner, a District of Columbia prisoner, questions why he is still serving an aggregate sentence of 4 to 12 years' imprisonment that he contends expired on July 11, 2005. Specifically, petitioner challenges the rescission of his "good time and [] street time" credit. Pet. at 6. Good-time credit reduces the time one has to serve before qualifying for parole eligibility and mandatory release. D.C. Code § 24-221.01a. It does not survive a conditional release. 28 C.F.R. § 2.35(b). Street-time credit is forfeited when parole is revoked. D.C. Code § 24-406. Because this violates neither the Constitution nor a federal statute, see Noble v. United States Parole Commission, 32 F. Supp.2d 11, 13-14 (D.D.C. 1998), aff'd 194 F.3d 152 (D.C. Cir. 1999), the writ may not be granted. A separate Order of dismissal accompanies this Memorandum.
