Rule number 1, never believe what your lawyer says. My first lawyer I fired because he wasn't doing his job. My second lawyer was disbarred and my third lawyer did not do what I asked him to do. Jail time is usually short anyway, under a year. If you ever get sent to the big house, prison, then there are ways to get parole sooner than normal. Some of the things you could do to look acceptable while in prison are: 1. Take every program available i.e. AA, D&A, Cognitive Self Change, Anger Management, Family Values etc 2. Go to church. The chapel marks down the names of all who attend church. 3. Volunteer for everything job you can, shows responsibility. 4. If there are victims and it is allowed, write a letter(s) of apology to them. 5. Stay out of trouble while in. Call the guards sir/maam and don't try to get away with stuff. 6. If they have school attend it taking whatever classes you can. 7. Don't get any tattoos. 8. Don't join any gangs. The guards will know. There are a dozen or so more things but you get the point. You hate prison/jail? Then behave yourself so you can get out sooner.

A prisoner who is sentenced to jail for a certain period can be released much earlier than that period, on Parole which is usually based on good behavior. That means even if a prisoner is sentenced to a one year prison term, what the lawyer means is that they can apply for earlier release on parole usually based on good behavior while in jail and if approved they don't have to stay longer in jail. the condition however is that, during the remaining period of their sentence even after they had been released, they should not violate any laws or the conditions of their parole

New to our legal system are you? Except for federal prison there is parole and good behavior. Good behavior generally can reduce a sentence by 1/3 or so. Parole is generally available after completeling 50-60% of a sentence. And finally, any time spent in jail prior to the conviction (at time of arrest and/or during trial) usually counts towards the sentence. The short answer is, 2 months in prison (after concivtion) on a one year sentence is very common.
