The length of sentence is definitely 7 years.  Look at his conduct record: http://search.archives.tas.gov.au/ImageViewer/image_viewer.htm?CON33-1-28,179,15,F,60

And compare the handwritten 7 with the handwritten 4 beneath it.

Yes on his certificate he was sentenced originally. His good behavior first on “The Kinnear” convict ship was marked as Good behavior. Each time the medical advisor marked his sheet with Good behavior, his sentence was cut more. By 1846 he was working under a farmer named Arthur Thompson. With supervision. Today we call it probation. By now he had met Ann Thompson, daughter of his supervisor. He asked for permission to marry her. The Penal Colony provided him with a ticket of leave, provided he continue to get good behavior. His ticket of leave would expire during 1948. When it did, John Brogan was granted his Freedom. He never married Ann Thompson. Once he received his freedom, he went to Richmond, Tasmania. There he met Charlotte Matilda White. He worked and saved, and then in 1849 John Married Charlotte, in the oldest R C Church in Australia. St John’s Catholic Church, Richmond, Van Diemans Land. They both left Richmond and headed toward the gold fields in Victoria. After his family had grown, charlotte became sick and passed away in 1898. John lived on with his Son in Elsternwick, Melbourne, Victoria. John passed away in 1907 and his grave is in the Elsternwick Cemetery.
