Do you know what type of recall it is?

No I'm not sure is there different types
Expert:  JG_Legal replied 1 year ago.

Generally speaking, a standard recall means the prisoner has to serve the whole sentence in prison unless they have a parole board hearing which recommends early release.

I hope this answers your question.
