Default Board looking at Domestic Violence parole revision in Texas

While updating guidelines for parole of DWI offenders, other issues were identified in Dr. Austin's report. The Board required a professional consultant for domestic violence, and security threat groups to revise the Boards parole guidelines. The Board selected an outside consultant, MGT of America Inc. to perform research and make recommendations to the Board for updating the parole guidelines. The contract is an 18 month initiative and began on Nov. 2010

Is there an article somewhere? I'd like to read more about this, especially to find out more about Dr. Austin and his report.

Yes, while trying to find out about the supplemental DWI guidelines the Board revised, I read that they are looking at Domestic Violence also. It seems it was started Nov. 1st, so the 18 month period should be up.
I just put in Parole Guidelines Annual Report FY 2010 in my search and scrolled to the revised guidelines. Dr. Austin was the consultant they used and I believe he was with National Institute of Corrections.
