illegal sentencing

a good friend of mine was given a sentence for theft. The judge sentenced him to ''10 years in the department of corrections. will suspend that on the condition that he serve five years in DOC. He will then be placed on five years of active probation after he gets out, and during that period of probation he will pay one thouseand dollars at least a month toward his resitituion.'' So what is suspended? to me it looks like he got a 15 year sentence. I thought the max was 10 years.

please can someone explain this to me
