A determinate sentence of imprisonment for 6 years means this is the maximum period of time the offender could spend in prison. A determinate sentence of imprisonment for 6 years would normally mean the offender is eligible for parole in 3 years (having served 1/2) and if released will serve the remainder of the sentence term in the community on licence. While on licence an offender will be subject to supervision and the licence will include conditions. If an offender breaches their conditions, they may be recalled to prison.

If the sentence is an extended sentence they will be eligible for parole after serving two-thirds (2/3) and if the term is a minimum term (life sentence) the offender will serve the full 6-years before they are eligible for parole.

If the offender is a foreign national they may be removed from prison and the country up to a maximum of 270 days before the half-way point of sentence (Early Removal Scheme).
