Sorry you are going through this. It is not 65% of the sentence
including probation, he must serve actually 65% of the time in prison before being eligible for parole. The problem here is you are calling too many people. You need to contact the court
that sentenced him and get a copy of the sentencing order from his case to get the actual sentence. But based upon what you are saying he is looking at the 5 years, with one suspended, so 4 yearsand 65% is about 30 months. The time does not include probation violations, those are separate and added to his sentence. The judge is not making him serve time for a crime he already served time for, he is enhancing his sentence because of the other gun crime. I am afraid the attorney you already spoke to is correct.
