Concurrent and consecutive sentences (a) A judgment imposing a sentence of imprisonment in a penitentiary or jail shall specify whether the sentence is to be served con currently with or consecutively to any other sentence imposed at the same time or prior thereto. If the sentences are to be served consecutively, the judgment shall specify when each sentence is to begin with reference to the termination of any other sentence. (b) Unless the judgment specifically postpones the commencement of a sentence pursuant to subsection (a) of this section, the sentence commences to run on the date fixed by section 4417 of this title, and shall be served concurrently with any other sentence imposed at the same time or prior thereto.
