Concurrent Sentence

When a defendant is serving a concurrent sentence, he is serving two or more terms of imprisonment simultaneously. In other words, a defendant who has two terms of imprisonment on two offenses and the sentence is concurrent, he will serve one sentence for the two offenses, and that will generally be the longer of the two sentences.
