Can someone explain to me, why and what is the significance of having criminal sentences run concurrently?

For example, Lamar Smith, who was recently found guity of attempted agg sexual assault (using internet chat rooms to pick up little girls,etc)
was given 8 years for one sentence and 5 years for another, but they are to be served concurrently.

Since he's such a sick fuck, why not just add them up and make him serve 13 years?
Whats the point of the 5 year sentence if you've sentenced him to 8 for the other one?
