Need more info. Was it a violent crime? Is he eligible for 50%? Is he eligible for ab 109 and will he stay at county? Does he have a current or previous strike? Thanks

It is considered a violent crime and he will get one strike for this offense, he had 6 weeks left of Probation for a previous offense and he had a complete different situation, and he did very well on Probation of 3 yrs he completed all that was required and always had clean tests. With this case he was a the wrong place at the wrong time and accused of something that is not true, he accepted the three yr because we could not afford a Attorney and also the time that they told him he may get was unacceptable.

It sounds like he will do 85%. He should have about 2 years after they factor in the 7 months he has already been in. Once he hits reception they will give him an Earliest Possible Release Date (EPRD). Check out the California site. It doesn't get much action but there is one person who seems to know everything plus it has all the CDCR information.

I understand completely. My friend is about to take a deal for the same reason. The time the DA is threatening is an unacceptable risk. So what do you do take a reasonable amount or risk life even though you're innocent? She has a private attorney and though he was offered a better deal than the public defender even tried for he does not want to risk a life sentence either.
