Is it possible to get parole for a felony DUI?
My friend was just sentenced to 10 years in prison for a DUI involving an injury of another driver.

He was placed on the Diversions program for the burglary charge, and then a year into the program, he received the DUI charge. With his charges, will he ever be eligible for parole, and if so when?
