of course, he risks being revoked and if so then he would serve the remainder of the sentence for which he has been granted parole. in addition, the following apply



20 year penalty for manufacture, delivery, or possession with the intent to deliver

10 year penalty for possession

the parole board already offered him 12 months more of parole, but he delayed that waiting to hear what he was charged with and how much time he might get for the new charges. with a private lawyer it is possible to not have to serve so much time, correct? and is that 10 years per charge?
Expert:  Samuel II replied 7 years ago.



yes, it is 10 each, though as you state with a good attorney could get the heroin charge dropped. there is so much zero tolerance on the meth these days, i dont think they will forego that one. but at any rate, if they go on both any sentence would probably be given as concurrent - meaning running at the same time as opposed to consecutive which means they run one after the other.
