Default Sentenced...Does time start when sentenced or when he gets to prison?

When they get sentenced when does it actually start counting? My bf got 7 yrs in state but does that start counting as soon as hes sentenced or until he actually gets to the prison?

The clock starts ticking at sentencing. Also, he should get some jail credit for the time he was locked up waiting to get through the court process (if they were new charges, not a revocation).

He should get some time served from county but basically yes time starts once he hits reception and gets processed

Credit for time served in jail is pre-sentencing. Anything after sentencing, from sentencing forward, is applied to his sentence.
