Legal Question

Asked on: 5/24/13, 12:39 pm

Hi, I just have a quick simple question. I was sentenced today to serve 79 days in jail "straight time". I opted to serve because I had no choice and my public defender told me id only be serving half. The courts gave me time to surrender, but I'm looking over my papers now and it says 79 days straight time although my PD said 39 days max? I have no priors or additional cases, did I miss something during court, the judge was in a hurry and didn't say much. So is it 79 days but I serve half? And if it is, why does it still say 79 days on the paper I signed? Thank you so much for your time
