    This applies when a person has been sentenced on two different criminal charges. Concurrent means that both sentences will be served at the same time. For example, Bubba is charged with two counts of Shoplifting, he recieves thirty days on each sentence for a total of sixty days. Now if the judge orders the sentences to run concurrent, Bubba is going to do both sentences at the same time for a total of thirty days.

    Consecutive means that each sentence will have to be served separately. This time Bubba is charged with two counts of littering, and gets thirty days on each count for a total of sixty days. The judge orders the sentences to run consecutive. that means Bubba has to do thirty days on his first littering charge, then when that is done, he has to do thirty more days for his other littering charge, for a grand total of sixty days jail time.

    Concurrent = "at the same time"

    Consecutive = "one after the other, or stacked"

    Good examples, SpecOps
