    Answered . Assuming its a sentence for one crime and not a consecutive sentence for multiple crimes many results are possible. Assuming he is eligible for shock probation and it is granted, he may spend less than 6 months. If shock probation is not an option and it is not a 3(g) offense (usually more serious crimes), then he must serve 1 year before becoming eligible for parole. If it is an aggravated/3G offense, then 2 years most be served before becoming eligible for parole. Remember, this refers to parole eligibility, parole is not mandatory.

    Answered . On a four year prison sentence a person will likely do about a year before making parole. It depends on what they were sentenced for and how bad their criminal history looks. Parole eligibility does not guarantee someone will make parole.
