Spanish term or phrase: preventiva
La preventiva acmulada es acrediable en una solo [sic] instancia... el exceso de preventia acumulado se acreditara a la sentencia que reciba ...
"Preventiva" is obviously time served before sentencing; defendant wants to have it credited. Any exact rendering of "preventiva"?
Again this is Puerto Rico.
