My name is ***** ***** I will be assisting you today.
Because he was previously convicted of a felony, he will get 2 for 1 credit in California prison. That is, for every two days he serves, he will receive an additional day of credit. This is assuming he maintains good behavior and gets no write ups while in custody.
It is possible, if he maintains good behavior, that his sentence could be reduced by 1/ 3, which would mean release in about three years inside instead of serving the entire sentence.
