That is impossible to say with only this information. He could be on CDC parole, non-revocable parole, or post-release supervision where he would only be subject to county jail time up to 6 months at half-time. It all depends. Talk to a criminal defense attorney who can get the information needed and advise accordingly.

On a parole violation, the most he can receive is a year flat. However, parole violations often come with new charges. If he is facing new charges, then the amount of time he'll do is going to be based on what the charges are.

Enough time so you might consider getting a new boyfriend. On a parole revocation they can send him back to do the time he originally got.

    He potentially faces doing the remaining time on his original prison sentence,, which was shortened by parole. He also faces whatever time applies to any new charges that he may have been arrested on, with 25 to life under the 3-Strikes rules on a 3rd offense.

    If the Judge revokes his parole, he will head back to state prison to serve out the remainder of his original statutory sentence. Sometimes this is pre-determined, because Judges often impose conditions when they release a person on parole, so the punishment may be pre-determined.

    That depends on the basis for the parole violation. If the violation is as a result of a new offense, he could do 25 to life. If the reason for the VOP is for a failure to do or for not doing something, probably up to 1 year.
