HelloThis is Samuel and I will discuss this and provide you information in this regard.If the sentences are running concurrently, that means at the same time. Generally, once the longer sentence is complete, the other sentence also is complete. If the NY sentence is the longer one, then he would need to have a NY attorney petition the court to reduce the sentence. That can be based on his good conduct in NJ and his possible parole release.He would need a NY attorney to do this for him as the NY District Attorney would need to agree to it. It is not something I would suggest he tries to do on his own.
Thank youIt is a Petition to Reduce Sentence.Any programs available via NJ could be useful. But you would need to contact the NY District Attorney to find out what they would accept. It is discretionary to the DA.The good conduct will be shown via his behavior while in NJ, as well as his programming - but again, only the NY District Attorney can approve any NJ programming. You also would want to see if the NY DA is willing to agree to a reduction in sentence.
