General Parole Hearing Information

Parole hearings are either conducted via video connection or "in-person"/live at the institution.
Each hearing consists of three board members and a parole officer. Inmates are allowed to express to the board why they believe they should be paroled, the Board then asks a number of questions.  Once these questions are complete, the Board convenes in Executive Session and returns to give the inmate the decision.
All hearings are scheduled ONLY when all information relative to the case is received.
