Concurrent sentencing--Determination of initial parole date.
In the determination
of an inmate's initial parole date, two or more convictions arising from the same transaction, for
which the sentences are made to run concurrently, shall be considered as one conviction. Two or

concurrently shall be considered as separate convictions. The first parole date shall be figured on the
concurrent sentence with the longest time to serve to parole. If there are different transactions with
at least one occurring prior to July 1, 1996, and at least one occurring on or after July 1, 1996, the
inmate shall be subject to parole provisions effective at the time of the offense with the longest time
to parole eligibility or initial parole.
