Post AB 1308-Youth Offender Parole up to age 25

Just an FYI if this isn't already posted some where else on this site:

Existing law generally requires the Board of Parole Hearings to conduct youth offender parole hearings to consider the release of offenders who committed specified crimes when they were under 23 years of age and who were sentenced to state prison.

This bill would instead require the Board of Parole Hearings to conduct youth offender parole hearings for offenders sentenced to state prison who committed those specified crimes when they were 25 years of age or younger.....

So 260 was through 18, 261 was through 23 and this would expand it to 25? Wow. Cali is just on a roll lately!

I agree!! Where's this change of heart coming from? Whether it passes or not it's great that there's at least a conversation about it.

Essentially it would be an extension of existing SB260 and SB261 which require that persons convicted of a crime before their 18th and 23rd birthday, respectively, will have a youth parole hearing rather than a standard (adult) parole hearing.The scale for parole grant is different between youth and adult, they look at different factors and influences. It doesn't mean more lenient, but it takes a different perspective. Provided they continue on the same time line, there are different dates for youth parole hearing than their existing EPRD, as well.

My husband qualifies for youth parole hearing under SB261. Instead of having a standard parole hearing in 2032, he will have a youth parole hearing sometime (per his consultation) in the next year which is his qualifying 15th year for determinate sentence. We're still waiting on a date.

Violent offenders are included but must serve 15 years on a determinate or 25(?) on an indeterminate sentence before being eligible. It does not help those with sentences shorter than 15 years.

Oh okay I see. He told me that his counselor said his parole date changed. He said he don't know why but he said his time went down. I haven't got a chance to talk him because they are on lockdown which sucks.

Default Age Extension to SB 261

AB 1308 is looking to amend SB 261 and extend the age from 23 to 25. A link to a sample letter and instructions on where to send your support latters is attached. This would be a huge help to those who just missed the original cut off for SB 261.
