On that date he waived his right to a preliminary parole revocation hearing. Thereafter, and without having been retaken on the New York State warrant, (a) petitioner was sentenced by a New Jersey court to serve one year in a jail in that State upon his conviction of criminal possession of stolen property, and (b) upon the completion of his sentence in New Jersey on August 14, 1980, petitioner was returned to the Ossining Correctional Facility in this State.
