When the D.A. makes an offer of 3 to 12 years what exactly is the deal, is it left up to the parole board, and why such a big gap of 9 years in between?

@lovejoy,
it appears to be a mystery to most US americans, it certainly is to me.

Well, first you have to get sentenced to the three to twelve years by the judge. Then there is the incredibly complex system of figuring in "good behavior", "time served" and "parole benefit points" depending upon the State of the conviction.

It's possible with a sentence of 3-12 to be eligible for parole in 26 months and be out after 30.
