Default When you are battling two cases , does one sentence start before the other

Good evening ,

I have a little information and hope maybe someone can clarify . If someone (my fiancť ) is battling one case (new) and took a deal to stay out of police contact for ten years in exchange for no prison time for a prior case(old) ... will he automatically head upstate at his next court date to start his time before they even start on the second case ?Iím sorry if itís confusing . The scenario is :

He took a deal a few years before I met him saying no police contact for ten years , in exchange for no time on a gun charge and they put him in a program . If he breaks that then he automatically does time . He has since been in police contact for a new case years later . Since they have advised him that they want their time (5 years ) .. will that start on the next court date ? And heís sentenced for the first case and shipped off ?... he hasnít gotten started on the second case yet .

His time will start for each case as he's sentenced in court by the Judge for that individual case. I'm not familiar with NY, but best guess is that it'll take a while for him to be transferred to an A & C / Reception facility, especially since covid, if they're transporting at all.

EDIT: Here is a link to the New York forum:
