Default Inmate committed offense while in prison

Hello,

An inmate that I have been talking to was sentenced for armed robbery back in 2011. She was about to be freed last September 2016, but then she was caught with <25 gms of cocaine (while in prison - don't ask me how she got hold of that, while incarcerated, still banging my head about it). A year later in Sep 2017, she pled guilty and was given min 4 months sentence (max 3 yrs)to be served concurrently. So she thinks she can get out as early as May 2018, although the maximum discharge appears 2026.

Am I right in thinking she is too optimistic about it? My head tells me that she won't make out for at-least 2-3 years, but I'm no expert. I think she's messed her release big time by the latest offense, when she was close to getting out.

Any opinons on this?
Thanks
Liam

I think you need to look at what she's done in prison, especially since the Coke bust. If she's engaged in substance abuse programming, done everything she can in education, therapy, programming, etc, then she's got a shot. If she's done nothing, then she's being overly optimistic. Encourage her to beef up her parole resume to demonstrate that she's a good candidate for parole. I hope she's no longer using.
