Law/Patents / court judgement
Swedish term or phrase: verkställt i anstalt
fängelsestraffet skall till en tid av trettio dagar anses verkställt i anstalt

I'm really not sure how to express the latter part. Anyone know more than I do?

Thanks, Helen

Explanation:
Thirty days of the prison sentence will be considered time served. In other words: The time the prisoner spent incarcerated awaiting trial will be credited towards his sentence.
I hope this makes sense.
All the best,
