What does a Serve All from parole mean?
I've noticed a lot of people asking about what it really means when their loved one gets a "serve all" from the Texas Department of Pardons and Parole and whether it really means they have to do all of their sentence?
It does not. A "serve all" is a short way of saying that the offender will not be approved for discretionary parole and must serve the sentence at least until their "short way". A short way is the date on which all of the actual time, good time, and work time add up to a complete sentence, usually a little less than half of the actual sentence time. For instance, on a two years sentence the short way will be between 10 and 11 months.
I hope this clears up any misunderstandings.
