The best person to inquire about a possible early release date is the parole department with respect to the question you have written about in the county and state where the inmate is incacerated. Whether an earlier release date than the full sentence that has been imposed depends upon many factors.

Such factors are whether or not the inmate has behaved well in prison, how crowded the prison is, and other factors such as a parole report that would assess his progress in rehabilitation.

Good luck.
