My boyfriend is a felon he was charged with possession of a firearm they sentenced him to 3 years but he is eligible for parole in 18 months, I thought with a firearm possession you get one year mandatory?

Actually, the federal statute is five years on a felon's possession of a firearm. If he gets a shot at parole in 18 months, it means the state did him a favor not getting the feds involved. Hopefully he will do well at his Parole Board Hearing and get out at half way through the three years.
