Default How does Parole Reconsideration work?

Hello I am wondering if anyone knows how the reconsideration work? I know the inmate writes a letter of reconsideration, but what if it's approved? Do they have another parole hearing or does that mean the parole has been granted?

If the Board grants the reconsideration, which has to be based on factors not presented at the original hearing, then it vacates the decision to deny parole. Because it requires 5 votes to reconsider, a successful reconsideration will act as a grant of parole. The applicable board policy is below. Hope this helps.


2.25-Appeal of Board Decision
An inmate or his/her attorney may request reconsideration of any parole decision of the Board
within sixty days of the official vote of the Board. The request must be made in writing. Requests for reconsideration may be submitted through the Unit’s IRO or to the Board. Only one reconsideration request will be considered by the Board per decision. A request for reconsideration shall only be granted following the affirmative vote of no less than five (5) members of the Board

So if I'm understanding correctly, then if they vote in favor of his reconsideration, then there should be no further parole hearings unless otherwise stated?

I think I understand. I had another question though, are the deliberations open to the public? Or am I able to request special permission to be present during the deliberations to ensure my husband's case receives just consideration?

Most certainly. I believe my husband's reconsideration deliberation is this Wednesday and I have literally discovered some brand new, extremely pertinent statistics that literally give my husband a less than 2% chance of recidivism. I also found an article packed full of statistics proving that for first time offenders, longer sentences actually increase their risk of recidivism. Do you think they will allow me to deliver this to the parole board in Little Rock Tomorrow?

You should be able to either fax it or send it by email. Call the Parole Board and ask how to submit it to support your husbands reconsideration request.
