Just thought of a question?

Have a question?

He caught a charge, then got bail, then got caught stealing a car? We don't know what the first charge was so it makes guessing harder. Plus we need to know is past criminal history and if he's been in before. There are several determinates that make up the sentence. Just a guess, if there are no priors... 2-3 years

Manafort will get a longer sentence because he went to trial and lost. The government will file a PreSentence Report to the judge and try to pile on as much time as they can, maybe asking for 20 years - which really adds to the drama. There are sentencing guidelines which federal prosecutors push to the high side of the range - understanding that they get graded on how much time their "wins" bring. It's a shitty system, but its...

The old charges are the problem. The judge will look at priors and that this offender apparently doesn't take the protection order seriously. He could sit for a while with no bail before they even determine what they are looking to offer him. Please remember we are just guessing from the limited information in the question above.

He can apply for transfer, but normally that requires both jurisdictions and the judge agreeing to it. The compelling argument from the probationer is having a stable residence and legal/approved employment in Bakersfield.

Was this sentence related to a probation/parole violation? Normally, a 100% sentence is related to that - where the first act of leniency by the courts was not heeded, there is no second chance at freedom. If this is the Judgment and Commitment paper signed by the judge on the original case, then he will be entitled to the "automatic 15% good time credit" allotted to all inmates when they begin their bid. The inmates can only lose this by not...

Minimum she will do is six years and the maximum is 20 years. If she does what she is supposed to do, while incarcerated, namely following the rules and programming recommendations. If she keeps herself out of trouble, she could be paroled in six years of so, pretty short sentence for manslaughter (i got 8 years for theft of marketing emails - no money lost, no money made from the crime - 8 years, federal prison).

Please explain "two years at 100%". Judges do not normally use that terminology. They might say, "24 months, no parole", but the length of time that the offender ultimately serves is up to the Department of Corrections and the inmate themselves. If you follow the rules and are a model prisoner, most sentences come with 15% good time granted at the time of incarceration.

This depends on the previous criminal history of the offender. If this is not their first time, they will be looking at 2-5 in state prison.

Yes, most sentences are only served to the 85% mark. Good time credit is 15% and given to every inmate as they enter prison, an inmate can only lose goodtime. On a 10-year state sentence or 120 month federal sentence, the sentence served would be 102 months. This providing that the inmate remain in good standing, not full of incident reports, disciplinary transfers, etc.

This depends on the offender's criminal history, the value of the crime (how much was the street value), was anyone hurt, was a weapon present? Along with whether they plead or go to trial, all these elements are factors in the calculation and determination of the actual sentence imposed. If you would like to offer more information, we might be able to get a bit more specific.
