3-10 years was Cosby’s sentence, but this question applies to all vague sentences like that.
What does that mean?
How do they know when they have completed sentence and it is time to be released?
Who or what determines, they have completed the time?
I thought 3-10 would be a minimum and maximum that one could be sentenced to, and at sentencing the Judge would give 48 months, or 5 years 3 months, or whatever but an actual defined time period.
