Hello and Welcome to PTO! I moved your post to the California Legal Forum where you might get answers to your questions. I wish I could help you, but I have no idea what any of that means. Hopefully someone will come along who can help.

My guess is that it's an unofficial copy and they're giving you a heads up that it may not be complete so don't rely on it for legal purposes.

Most reception inmates are there for 3-6 months, so it's still a little early to be concerned about not seeing the counselor yet.

Is he serving at 50%? If so, he won't do the whole two years and most likely will never make it out of Wasco. They tend to not like to move people out for just a few months time.

Pretty much summarizing the costs incurred due to the offense and any parties involved that can place a lien on anything you and your husband own in order to recoup the costs/damages because of it. That is my rudimentary summary of what it is according to dictionary law .com So basically they are coming after any or all your assets and they are publicly making notice of that so people can take action to place liens. Best regards in the matter.

As I understand it the abstract of judgement does include any fees, fines etc.
It also will include the time he was sentenced to.


What the error part is, I dont know.
You can look up the codes in there and find the sentencing guidelines for what he was convicted of. There is usually a range.


Agree with Mia, its not at all unusual for them to be in reception and not see their counselor for a good long while. I forget exactly how long its SUPPOSED to be, but it seems it rarely IS with in that time frame.

Your husband is sentenced and serving his time. Nothing left for the attorney to do. If you wish to understand how much time your husband might actually do, use the inmate locator:

https://inmatelocator.cdcr.ca.gov/

After you enter his info and do a few clicks it will show his Parole Eligible Date which is earliest he could release. I don't know how long it takes for CDCR to post that for a new inmate. If they haven't yet, they will eventually. That date will be less time than his 2 year sentence.

Go to the county court website which sentenced him. Pull up his case number BF158835A to see if a corrected or modified Abstract of Judgment has been entered. P.C.666.5(a)(do not use) is a enhancement prior This not to be used in this matter according to the abstract of judgement .
You can read Penal code section 666.5(a) Here Your husbands two year sentence will still hold unless there is error in the original count in which he is sentenced on. With only two years that is very doubtful. His private attorney is done with this matter as it is now and is under no obligation to talk to you about this matter even if you paid him.

Sounds like that means he's serving 50 percent. In the end, it could be even less time if he earns other credits.
