"...In this Article, we make recommendations regarding the manner in which
prison conditions should impact the length of a prison term. We suggest
that for most prisoners, every day spent in supermax conditions should
result in two days’ credit towards the expiration of the prison term.
Hard-time credits are justified by the principle of proportionality,
which stipulates that the seriousness of the crime should be matched by
the hardship of the penalty."
