Hello,

If you're serving a life sentence for armed robbery in Georgia and you were convicted between 1995 and June 30, 2006, you will be eligible for parole after 14 years. If you're serving a life sentence and were convicted after July 1, 2006, you will have to serve 30 years before you are eligible for parole.

If you are serving a non-life sentence for armed robbery, according to the Georgia State Board of Pardons and Paroles, you are not eligible for parole.
