Not really easy to answer without more detailed information. You list two offenses. I'll paste in some information below. In general, a class A misdemeanor can be up to one year in jail but most counties give good time to cut that in half or to a third. A state jail felony can be 6 to 24 months with no possiblity of early release. Third degree felonies are 2 to 10 years in prison, second degree felonies can bring 2 to 20 years and a first degree felony is in the range of 5 to 99 years or life. Multiple sentences can be run concurrently (at the same time) or consecutively (one after the other ). First, second and third degree felonies come with the possiblity of early release with parole eligibility after about 1/8th of the time and eligiblity for release to mandatory supervision at a bit less than the halfway mark.
