Hypothetically if someone is sentenced to 3 seven year charges to run concurrent, how long will they actually spend in prison?

I am sorry I can't give you a definite answer on how long it would be because there are a lot of factors they look at for parole, which include if they have been on probation before, their criminal history, the crimes they have committed, their behavior in DOC, etc.  Concurrent sentences also increase the time as well.  The minimum I am told by DOC on any sentence is 15%.  I hope that helps.  Also, please remember I do not make these rules and I think these guys should go for their full sentences.
