A friend of mine is a judge and we talked about this when the act was granted royal assent. He said they were given that credit because they don't have access to any type of rehabilitation, treatment or counseling before they're sentenced. He thought there was some legitimacy to it but also thought it was open for abuse. If a guy knew he was going away to jail, he would have his lawyer drag it out as long as he could which would shorten his stay in the big house.
