Default Sentence and parole question

Ok, i'm considering taking a 2-5 Category C felony with 17 month time served.

I've heard of them taking time of the front and people who receive a 12 - 48 for example will be eligible for parole in 8 months.

So wouldnt that mean that I would be eligible for parole at 16 months with a 2-5 plea, under category c?

essentially I should be eligible for parole as soon as I hit the fish tank if they're taking time off the front for E, D and C felonies, right?

My understanding is that you cannot be released until you've served the minimum, i.e 24 months in your case including the 17 already in. So at least 7 months to go.

Credits only come off the top number.

I can't claim 1000% expertise here, but my ex-girlfriend was sentenced in Nevada 3 days ago, 19-48 with 7 served, so the question you're asking is directly on point with her situation. As we came out of court, her lawyer confirmed that she's got at least a year to go. She also said first offenders usually make their first parole.
