Judge agrees to nix day-for-day stipulation from initial order

Barring any unforeseen misconduct, Adam Reposa will get out of jail on Jan. 3, 2018. Visiting Judge Paul Davis signed a second amended order on Monday acknowledging the state and Reposa’s Agreed Motion to Reform the Judgment of the Court, knocking the day-for-day qualifier off Reposa’s 180-day sentence for contempt of court, which the loquacious DWI attorney began serving in October. The order means Reposa will now be able to receive credit for “good time,” thereby cutting his six-month sentence in half.
Reposa’s attorneys were hopeful that Davis’ signing meant their client would get out on Monday, as the time he’d spent on a bench warrant in Williamson County’s jail working in the kitchen would have presumably earned him trustee status, which grants inmates three days of credit for each day served, as opposed to the standard two-for-one rate for good time. Alas, according to Travis County Jail administrator Major Wes Priddy, the Williamson County Sheriff’s Office never sent their Travis County colleagues any report on Reposa’s manual labor. (WCSO did not respond to an inquiry about how that happened.)
“We will credit him with Sheriff’s good time … from the start date of his incarceration, counting time served at Williamson County as well,” said Priddy.
