  1. It could go either way with parole. It depends on the parole judge and the nature of the charges and whether the criminal court judge runs any sentence concurrent or consecutive to any time parole gives him

  2. Depending on how much time he gets from parole, any time on the new case will merge (run concurrent) with the parole time.

  3. Usually the new crime will not run concurrent with the parole time as the parole time runs "on the back end". That is not necessarily consecutive, it's a calculation based on a number of factors and the Department of Corrections will calculate how much time he will serve and how much good time he gets or credit for the time he is incarcerated. The sentencing laws are very complicated and it depends on how the new judge and the parole judge choose to sentence him.
