What your parole agent told you sounds about right. I think you meant that you absconded. That tolls the running of your parole period, meaning that the parole period remains in limbo until you are found again. You can have parole extended beyond the ordinary three year time frame if you violate your parole or if it is necessary. In your case, you had about 21/2 years of parole, then it got suspended, now you have 21/2 year left. That brings you to the maximum of 5 years parole.
