You have to start at 85% which is almost 41 months. For him to get any further reduction you will have to revert to the Judgement and Commitment which outlines what he is eligible for if anything above the 15% good time. The new "non-violent law " is actually a federal law and does not pertain to state sentences.

He will do 85% of 24 months, less the 96 days he's already done. By our calculation, that would be about 20.4 months (17.2 months remaining). Starting his bid n Feb 5th, we think his out date would be around June 15th, 2020

The outcome depends on a few factors. How much heroin? What there intent to distribute? The range of possibilities can be scary. A public defender is a lawyer, but not an advisable option if they are going to trial. If you are going to plead guilty, they will be just fine.

This depends on the facts in the case - how badly was the other person hurt, was there property damage or was there a restraining order violated?

If violated in the future would cause his incarceration for some time.

There is something called "mandatory minimum", we have not heard of a mandatory maximum. Offenders convicted under 924 (c) received an average sentence of 151 months which is about 12 years, however depending on the details of the crime and/or pertinent facts like an injury to a victim or heavy property loss. First time usually has very little to do with the sentencing as this crime is a very serious one.

He will probably have to sit there for a week or so until a magistrate judge sees him. The judge will want to know why he's violating a court order. If the judge believes his answer, he will probably be released shortly. If your boyfriend is defiant and unrepentant, he could sit there for months... for contempt of court. The judge must protect the rights of the person that your boyfriend is bothering. There is no actual sentence time. Just as long...

If they say he gets out on 3-23-20, that is less than three years so it appears they've included the good time credits all inmates get at the beginning of their bid.
