following cases:
   (1) When a prisoner is confined in or committed to a county jail,
industrial farm, or road camp, or any city jail, industrial farm, or
road camp, including all days of custody from the date of arrest to
the date on which the serving of the sentence commences, under a
judgment of imprisonment, or a fine and imprisonment until the fine
is paid in a criminal action or proceeding.
   (2) When a prisoner is confined in or committed to the county
jail, industrial farm, or road camp or any city jail, industrial
farm, or road camp as a condition of probation after suspension of
imposition of a sentence or suspension of execution of sentence, in a
criminal action or proceeding.
   (3) When a prisoner is confined in or committed to the county
jail, industrial farm, or road camp or any city jail, industrial
farm, or road camp for a definite period of time for contempt
pursuant to a proceeding, other than a criminal action or proceeding.
   (4) When a prisoner is confined in a county jail, industrial farm,
or road camp, or a city jail, industrial farm, or road camp
following arrest and prior to the imposition of sentence for a felony
conviction.
   (5) When a prisoner is confined in a county jail, industrial farm,
or road camp, or a city jail, industrial farm, or road camp as part
of custodial sanction imposed following a violation of postrelease
community supervision or parole.
   (6) When a prisoner is confined in a county jail, industrial farm,
or road camp, or a city jail, industrial farm, or road camp as a
result of a sentence imposed pursuant to subdivision (h) of Section
1170.
   (b) Subject to the provisions of subdivision (d), for each
four-day period in which a prisoner is confined in or committed to a
facility as specified in this section, one day shall be deducted from
his or her period of confinement unless it appears by the record
that the prisoner has refused to satisfactorily perform labor as
assigned by the sheriff, chief of police, or superintendent of an
industrial farm or road camp.
   (c) For each four-day period in which a prisoner is confined in or
committed to a facility as specified in this section, one day shall
be deducted from his or her period of confinement unless it appears
by the record that the prisoner has not satisfactorily complied with
the reasonable rules and regulations established by the sheriff,
chief of police, or superintendent of an industrial farm or road
camp.
   (d) Nothing in this section shall be construed to require the
sheriff, chief of police, or superintendent of an industrial farm or
road camp to assign labor to a prisoner if it appears from the record
that the prisoner has refused to satisfactorily perform labor as
assigned or that the prisoner has not satisfactorily complied with
the reasonable rules and regulations of the sheriff, chief of police,
or superintendent of any industrial farm or road camp.
   (e) No deduction may be made under this section unless the person
is committed for a period of four days or longer.
   (f) It is the intent of the Legislature that if all days are
earned under this section, a term of four days will be deemed to have
been served for every two days spent in actual custody.
   (g) The changes in this section as enacted by the act that added
this subdivision shall apply to prisoners who are confined to a
county jail, city jail, industrial farm, or road camp for a crime
committed on or after the effective date of that act.

subdivision shall apply prospectively and shall apply to prisoners
who are confined to a county jail, city jail, industrial farm, or
road camp for a crime committed on or after October 1, 2011. Any days
earned by a prisoner prior to October 1, 2011, shall be calculated
at the rate required by the prior law.
