Default Parole board operates opaquely


The Prisoner Review Board initially refused the*Injustice Watch*review of minutes dating back to 2012, responding that the request was overly burdensome. After reporters appealed to the state attorney general, the board agreed to make minutes available online, as the law requires, but has slowly provided past years and still has not turned over 2012.

Illinois Prisoner Review Board members at the June 2017 en banc hearing.
The minutes that were turned over are riddled with inconsistencies, errors, and missing information*—*including how members voted in some inmates’ hearings. In the December 2017 hearing, for example, board minutes noted the 7-7 vote denying inmate Michael Henderson parole. Not recorded: Which members voted for, and which against, the parole request.
