Criminal Lawyer: Ely, Counselor at Law replied 7 months ago

Thank you. Unfortunately, he is not eligible for parole, per se. In FL, sentencing guidelines were enacted, thereby effectively abolishing parole for those offenders who were sentenced for crimes committed on or after October 1, 1983. There is no mandatory date for release prior to end of his sentence. See HERE. Florida's early releases are now based on basically good behavior.

If it was first degree murder, there is simply no parole in majority of cases.

If it was second degree murder, he may be considered after about 15 years, for good behavior.

Please note: If I tell you simply what you wish to hear, this would be unfair to you. I need to be honest with you and sometimes this means providing information that is not optimal. Negative ratings are reserved rudeness or wrong information. Please be kind!
