Chapter 9.94A RCW
(1) A term of confinement, including community custody, ordered in a sentence pursuant to this chapter shall be tolled by any period of time during which the offender has absented him or herself from confinement without the prior approval of the entity in whose custody the offender has been placed. A term of partial confinement shall be tolled during any period of time spent in total confinement pursuant to a new conviction or pursuant to sanctions for violation of sentence conditions on a separate felony conviction.
(2) Any term of supervision, including postrelease supervision ordered in a sentence pursuant to this chapter shall be tolled by any period of time during which the offender has absented himself or herself from supervision without prior approval of the entity under whose supervision the offender has been placed.
(3) Any period of supervision shall be tolled during any period of time the offender is in confinement for any reason. However, if an offender is detained pursuant to RCW 9.94A.207 or 9.94A.195 and is later found not to have violated a condition or requirement of supervision, time spent in confinement due to such detention shall not toll the period of supervision.
(4) For confinement or sentences, the date for the tolling of the sentence shall be established by the entity responsible for the confinement. For sentences involving supervision, the date for the tolling of the sentence shall be established by the court, based on reports from the entity responsible for the supervision.
