Default Have a friend under Florida Parole/doing time in Virginia

Hi everyone. I have a good friend of mine serving time in Virginia. He did an interstate compact from Florida to Virginia to be closer to his family. He goes up for parole next year. He is a Lifer and he told me if he gets turned down for parole then he has to wait another 7 years until he goes up again. I thought that was pretty crazy, but nothing surprises me anymore when it comes to ANY DOC.

I guess my question is. Is there anything I can do? Like send letters on his behalf? Get support for him before his hearing? I am not familiar with the Parole Board or process down there. I did look up the Board and sent him the info. I am just trying to help a friend if I can. Anyone else go through this experience? Thanks in advance.

Yes, you (and others) may send letters of support to the Board.

The following VA Parole Board page has links to their Policy Manuel & Procedures Manuel:


Since he was Interstate Compact, are you sure there is no detainer out of Florida?
