Charles Graner: Admits Criminal Activity, Gets 10 Years
The jury has sentenced Charles Graner to ten years in prison. He leaves court, in shackles, still smiling.
Parole and clemency are available to Graner, to be determined by the Army Clemency and Parole Board. Regulations as of 1998 are available here (pdf.) For sentences betweeen 10 and 20 years, the prisoner comes up for parole after two years and is reviewed every year thereafter. Guidelines seem to suggest he would not be paroled before serving 1/3 of his sentence. The criteria or salient factors for parole are in section 3-2.
