Unhappy probation violation in texas

My fiancee is in jail for probation violation. He has 2 years left on a 5 year sentence for organize crime and possession <1 gram. His lawyer can't with a offer of 7 years tdc. He has no new charges. Is it asking to much to ask for 2 to 3 years tdc. With his back time he should be almost at time served. Also need to know how to get his probation transferred out of that county.

Sentence Reduction

Sentence reductions are difficult to obtain after starting to serve the time. You need to discuss with an experienced criminal defense attorney to determine whether the state of texas has any alternative programs that allow the person serving the sentence to attend some type of boot camp or program instead of jail as an alternative to the sentence. In most states this is called a judicial release. Another way to get a sentence reduction is good behaivor and other in jail programs that may bring the time served down than the original sentence.
