Welcome to PTO, lonelymom. Although it is always possible for someone to end up serving their entire sentence since approval for early release comes only by vote of the parole board but he is certainly eligible for parole and - especially if this is his first time in prison - he will likely make parole or release to mandatory supervision and not have to serve all two years. On a two year sentence he will become eligible for parole within a couple of months but the review process will take longer than that to complete ... usually in the four to six months range. If approved, actual release on parole will take some weeks or months longer. He will also be eligible for release to mandatory supervision (basically the same as parole, once released) which he will be eligible for after about eleven months. If he is approved for that then he will be released on his Projected Release Date which you will know after he is transferred to TDC.
