Thank you for your question. I look forward to working with you to provide you the information you are seeking for educational purposes only.
If he behaves in prison and goes to the sexual offender classes as required, the chances of an early release are fairly high based on the good behavior. However, he will not likely get released sooner than the 3 year minimum on his sentence unless you win your appeal.

Why would he not be eligible before the 3 years. As I was reading pa early release it looked as if he would be eligible n was told about program by his counselor

Thank you for your reply.

For sex offenders, it is going to be a bit longer, because they have to go through certain programs and the prisons do not run them continuously, so he needs to go through all the steps and most of the time it is going to be close to the 3 years before he completes everything and if he stays out of trouble he will get out.

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
