Hello and welcome.

The PBPP uses the "on or after" language so as not to be held to a specific date by the multitude of jailhouse lawyers. There are several steps in the release process and once in a while one of them takes longer than usual. Having said that, the odds are probably 99% that he will be released on April 1st.

He has to submit a urine sample. It goes out to a lab. The result is valid for 45 days.

The records office has to do a thorough search to ensure he has absolutely no open warrants or detainers anywhere in the US or with ICE.

The medical department has to give him a final check-up and provide a few days of any prescribed meds.

The field parole agent has to approve the NEW address. (If you don't alert them beforehand, he would be in violation for not going to the approved address.)

If he were to be involved in any wrongful behavior that leads to an investigation or disciplinary custody, his release would be delayed. This happens. In a few cases, people find out someone is leaving and deliberately start a fight.

When absolutely every last item is complete, the DOC notifies the PBPP and the PBPP transmits a final release order -- probably one or two business days ahead of the expected release date. The day before, he will "make rounds" to get a release checklist signed and he will pack his personal property.

One final note: he is not officially paroled until he steps off the prison property. The decision to parole him can be rescinded right up until that moment. Once he steps off the property, parole would have to be revoked, and that creates due process rights.
Justice and compassion don't have to be exclusive.
