If a person is sentanced in two counties but they are being ran conquerant is time served applied to both
Yes, if at least one of the judges ordered that the defendant serve their time concurrently with any other time that they were serving, then they get double credit for the time as they are serving both sentences at the same time.
If the judge ordered the time to be served "consecutively" that would be back to back so once the one sentence was up, the defendant would have to then serve the second sentence.
I mean if a person is sentanced to two crimes in two counties but they are ran conquerant is time served in the one county also applied to the other sentance in the other county.
I guess my question isnt clear enough. Im sorry. My husband had a case in will county where is he received a sentence of 12 moths and 18 months but because of the time served he would basically dress in and out. That case is being ran concurant with a cook county case inwhich it looks like the judge is giving him three years. Will the time served in will county also apply to his sentance in cook since they are being ran conquerant?
He was sentenced in will this past Tues and will be sentanced in cook on the 22st. So he hasnt served anytime yet for either crime. Once he is sentenced on the cook county charge he will then go to stateville. He received most of his time served while being in drug court in will county. It totaled aprox 400 plus days. So because the crime was comitted after he served that time. Can it still be applied in cook county. He is now facing the original charges from 2009 because he just got kicked out of drug court. So, in other words can the will county time served be applied to the cook county time after he goes to stateville. Is that where they process and do the math as far as time served ect? So? Basically what you are saying is since they are ran conquerant his time served in Will will abe applied to both Will and Cook plus the days he is now serving in cook county. So? He could still dress in and out?
At first you said time served would apply to both will and cook. I should give you more details His charge was in 2009 in will county second charge 2010 in will and then he entered drug court and spent aprox 400 days in will county for those two charges. then he picked up a new charge in cook in 2013. thus the reason he is kicked out of drug court and now facing all three charges. So again because all three charges are being ran conquerant will time served also be ran conquerant/applied?
Even if they are ran conqurent? So the judge has to be specifically asked for that time to appy?
this 2013 charge is being ran conquerent with the charges from 09 and 10 which he is also now just being sentenced for. So? offense in 09 and 10 are being sentenced in 13 along with his new case in cook. since all three are being ran conquerant and he was sentance for all three crimes now in 2013 and if will used times served towards their sentence wont that time apply to this one as well?
So? the judge in cook would have to specifically be asked to have the 400 applied? or should we let it go and see if its processed that way since they are all being processed at the same time when he reaches statesville.
