If you are sentenced to 10-25 with parole when will you be up for parole and you get credit for time served? 13 Answers as of October 16, 2012My nephew took a plea for 2nd degree murder-he was sentenced for 10-25 with parole and the judge stated that his 3 1/2 yrs that he has already served will count towards the sentence. How long will he have to serve before he is up for parole?

This depends largely on his prior criminal history, and is entirely up to the parole board. Sorry, but there is no easy answer to your question. However, in Missouri a serious crime of this nature has a mandatory 85%. This means that he must serve 85% of his sentence before he is parole eligible.

That depends on the state. He will be eligible for parole after 10 years but may not make it on the first parole hearing with a murder case. The time spent in jail will count and he may even get good time off the 10 years.

In another 6 1/2 years, he will be eligible for parole, unless he misbehaves, does not accept responsibility, is not remorseful, does assigned classes in jail for Anger Mgmt., etc.

He will be eligible for parole on the low end of the sentence entered, 10 years. If he did 3.5 years in custody, and the mittimus reflected that when shipped to the big house, he should be eligible in 6.5 years more. However, being eligible does not automatically mean he will be granted parole at that time.
