Legal Question

Asked on: 7/28/10, 2:03 pm

My husband was sentenced to six years and Detention and Diversion. After complete his sentencing he was on parole for two years before violating his parole. We heard a rumor that since Virginia passed a law stating that you couldn't serve both prison time and Detention and diversion; those who received both in one sentence were being awarded " good time" an their next prison or jail sentence for their detention and diversion time. Is this true?
