my sentence is 7 years and the judge credited me 644 days on one case and the other 2 cases were 6 year sentence each with a credit of only 322 days on each case
For non-aggravated cases, he will be ELIGIBLE for parole when his actual time served plus any good time credits equal one-fourth of his sentence . For most practical applications, that would be approximately 8 months on the 7 year sentence and 7 months on the 6 year sentence.
For aggravated cases, he must serve one-half of the sentence, day for day, before becoming eligible for parole.
Eligible DOES NOT mean that he's likely to get it.

Your communications with me are not protected by the attorney-client privilege since they are on a public forum and I have not agreed or even offered to be your attorney. No attorney client relationship exists or is intended to exist until I specifically state that a conversation is privileged. You may not agree with my answer and you may not agree with how I answer your question. I know that my bedside manner can be very abrasive to some people. However, if you decide to send me a personal e-mail to call me names or tell me where to shove things or tell me that I need to go back to law school because my answer doesn't comport with your google search, I reserve the right to publicize your message in any way I choose.
You will be eligible for parole after you serve 1/4 of your time, in most cases. So, you'll have to serve about 640 days on the 7 year sentence and about 550 days on the 6 year sentence, before being eligible. I'm making the assumption that your case was not a 3g offense or aggravated: If it is, then you'll have to serve half your time before being eligible.
The likelihood of parole on the first date of eligibility is reduced because of the multiple charges. The lawyer representing him at the plea should be able to answer your questions about the release date.
