If it says 2 years top/bottom on a plea agreement, does that mean he will get two years for sure? What does the probation department look at and how do they play a role in the sentencing hearing? How do they determine whether or not you stay at county or go to prison? He has several priors and it is for a felony.
If he agreed to a two year top/bottom, he gets two years, unless the judge refuses to go along with it (rarely happens), in which case he can withdraw his plea. Probation writes a report that the judge considers before sentencing. County or state prison is determined by what offense he is convicted of and his past criminal history.
I agree wholeheartedly with Mr. Pullman. He will be entitled to good time and work time credits deducted from the sentence, which are either 50% or 15%, depending on the nature of the offense.
