    Answered . It is quite possible that a person will be paroled on a 5 year sentence in a matter of months. It all depends on the crime severity level. This is what the Georgia Board of Pardons and Parole uses in determining eligibility for parole.

    A copy of the crime severity levels can be found on our website under the services window at:
