On January 25th 2016 I had a probation revocation hearing in which they revoked 5 years 4 months and 30 days from Dooly County. One third of this time is 21 months
On May 17th 2016 I attended Court in Bulloch County and received a five-year sentence with credit for time served back to July 29th 2015 and it was ran concurrent with the probation revocation
My current parole eligibility date is November 2017 which means it was calculated from the probation revocation date of January 25th 2016
With the credit for time served back to July 29th 2015 and all sentences being run concurrent shouldn't my parole eligibility date be calculated from July 29th 2015 which would make my parole eligibility date April 2017 because that's 1/3 which is 21 months
I was told that I receive credit for time served for both counties but I was also told since my probation time is the controlling sentence the credit for time served and concurrent status doesn't apply to my parole eligibility date calculations
Best to ask your lawyer or get the court documents that have the credit.
Providing general answers are meant to help the poster to understand some complex legal concepts and in no way creates an attorney-client relationship.
DOC does not have to give you "double" credit. Unfortunately, it will give you credit for the time that you were physically located in a certain facility, regardless of holds and despite the fact that you did not bond out and were administratively transferred to another facility.
