Keep in mind that Troy could be released sooner than one year. His attorney, John B. Stella, mentions,

“Roland was sentenced on 2/9/24 to 1 year jail on his plea to attempted criminal possession of a weapon in the 2nd degree,” the statement reads. “Under the law he must serve 8 months to satisfy that sentence. Since he previously spent almost 2 months in jail before he made bail, the remaining balance of time he must serve is a little over 6 months.”

In the meantime, Troy appears to be optimistic about serving his time. But at the same time, he is apprehensive about what to expect while in prison.

Sadly, his friend McPhatter lost his life that fateful day. So, Troy is left with grieving him, all while serving out this sentence. As for Taxstone, he is serving out an alleged 35-year sentence for the fatal shooting.
