In state court, for a violent felony like armed robbery, he will not even be eligible for parole until he serves at least 50% of his sentence. Thereafter, it is up to the Parole Board whether to release him early, and that depends on many factors. Without parole, he can count on 5-10 days per month "good time" (no infractions) and work/program credits, which are deducted from the total sentence time. Figure anywhere from 60-120 days (2-4 months) earned off the sentence every year he serves. In 10 years, he'll have shaved off 20-40 months, or nearly 2 to 3-1/2 years off his sentence. These are very rough timelines and do not take into consideration various factors, most importantly being approved for parole.
