Prior prison sentence violent crime with strike
Is this actually a federal crime, or was the sentence in state court?
Under California's determinate sentencing law, he will be paroled on the eligible date unless he loses credits for a disciplinary violation. There may be educational and counseling programs that could earn him additional time off his sentence.
This is NOT legal advice. It is a general discussion of legal principles by a California lawyer, and does not create an attorney/client relationship. You should always consult PRIVATELY with an attorney. Free consultation only applies to potential clients with a criminal case within 100 miles of Chico, California.
If he is not eligible for parole for two years he has to serve two years. He could serve longer since being eligible is not the same as receiving parole, as I am sure you know.
