Default Habitual Offender Act: Eligible for parole / transfer to CC at age 55?


I have the following questions and would like to know who do I ask to get an answer to these questions. I don't have any money to consult an attorney so I'm trying the web to get an answer.

In Arkansas Under the Habitual Offender Act ss 5-4-501. Where it states upon reaching the minimum age of 55 becoming eligible for parole or transfer to the community corrections. Does this provision apply to all sentenced under ss 5-4- 501, or specifically those under subsection c and d?

Are the statutes ss 16-93-406 e, ss 16-93-407 f, and Ark. Stat. Ann. ss 43- 2829 E Repl. 1977 applicable or current law? And how is it applied to consecutive sentences regarding parole today?

I would really appreciate it.

I've read the current statute 5-4-501 and I don't see any language about transfer at 55. Each subsection of the statute (a, b, c & d) control the sentence and apply only to those subsections. I did a search for parole eligibility of habitual offenders at 55 and nothing relevant was returned. If you can quote the specific section you are referring to, I'll be happy to search it and see what I can find.

I'm using a subscription to Lexis Advance, so it's current, and 16-93-406 and 407 don't exist. 16-93-401, 402, and 403 have all been repealed. 43-2829 only applies to person convicted of felony crimes between April 1, 1977 and April 1, 1983 and is codified at 16-93-604.
