PAROLE ELIGIBILITY

POLICY
Parole may be granted at the sole discretion of the Board when in the opinion of the Board there is a reasonable probability that an inmate of a correctional facility can be released without a detriment to the community or himself/herself. Parole shall be ordered only with the best interests of society being considered and not as an award of clemency; nor shall it be considered as a reduction in sentence or a pardon.

CRITERIA

A. The inmate must have served his/her minimum term, less any special good time earned.
B. The inmate must not be serving a life sentence.
C. The inmate will not be eligible for parole on the sentence from which he/she made an assault with a deadly weapon upon an officer, employee, or inmate of any institution.
D. An inmate who has escaped, attempted to escape or assisted others toescape from an institution while on inmate status, on probation, on parole, or on pre-release status, will not be eligible for parole on the sentence from which he/she escaped, attempted to escape or assisted others to escape. When an inmate is unavailable for his/her annual review hearing due to escape status, the inmate automatically waives his/her right to a board appearance for that year.
E. An inmate will not be granted parole to the street if he/she has had a major predatory disciplinary infraction (as defined on page 16 of the Code of Discipline Handbook of the WDOC) within the year preceding the hearing, unless, on a case by case basis:
1. The inmate is paroled to his/her detainer;
2. The Board determines that extenuating or extraordinary circumstances exist regarding the major disciplinary. For lesser disciplinaries the Board will use its discretion in reaching its decision on the appropriate impact of the behavior.
F. The Board will consider whether there is a reasonable probability that the inmate is able and willing to fulfill obligations as a law abiding citizen.
G. The inmate must submit a written parole plan prior to the hearing. This plan shall include living arrangements, employment opportunities, programming/treatment and medical considerations if applicable.
