Question Anyone have a SPLIT sentence or SHORT under 2 year sentence???

My LO has a split sentence of 20 years/ serve 1 year prison. Anyone else have something similar that can share what to expect. I don't know if since its a split sentence if he has to serve that WHOLE year, OR if it's just the SAME as a 1 year prison sentence with eligibility for parole SOONER?.

He has NON- violent crimes. I see a lot of people saying that sentences under 2 years serve most of the time, but some examples might give me ideas please!? Is it about 50-60 or 70-80%??? Any ideas?
He is still in diagnostics and has been there almost 7 weeks. He has served counting county time, about 6 months.

Any responses are greatly appreciated!!

My husband in the same situation sort of. He has 2 yrs left on parole. He violated his parole on a new charge (misdemeanor). His parole officer served him with a 6 month waiver. They say when u sign a waiver that your time starts from the time u get arrested and he been arrested for two months now. I heard that 1/3 of ur time u have to do, but it varies...so 1/3 of my husband time is like 8 to 10 months....my husband waiting to be sent back to jackson state prison for diagnostic.....but with the prisons being so overly crowded, I doubt they would really want people for technical violation. They may send him to a camp or back to the county jail for overly crowded.....lets just see how it goes...

You never know. It seems like they want to keep the people as long as possible unfortunately. It's just a waiting game.

My LO was given 2 years on a 10 year sentence. I was told by a ADA friend that he would serve 9-12 months. When I called P&P and asked why he hasn't gotten a TPM date, the lady said that he isn't eligible for Parole because he has less than 3 years. She said anyone serving less than 3 years does the entire time. This was definitely a kick in the stomach. My friend talked to someone else (former P&P employee) and they said 9-12 months. Our 9-12 months will be January to April 2016. I pray everyday that will be how it works for us.

It's crazy how there's no rhyme or reason to things. I have been researching non stop and I see both ways. A lot of people say that anything under 3 years serves entire time but then again I see some people's story that is not the case and they get out earlier. It would just be good to know
