Default Merit release question

Hi! My brother went in front of the board this month for his merit hearing for a December 2018 release. His councilor and another teacher told us he got approved but he hadn't gotten his formal letter at that time. He was supposed to get it today but if didn't come. We looked up the DOCCS and his earliest release date changed from 5/2019 to 9/18/19, Earliest release type changed to Open date for parole release, parole hearing date changed from 8/2018 to 2/2019 and the parole hearing type went to Merit APPR open date/6 mo AFT mert appear.

Does anyone know what this means?? He was supposed to be granted release in December 2018.

If he appeared at a board he will be receiving a decision from the parole board within 3 days. That decision will clear up confusion. This is too much explaining for this little space. I’m sure he will know all the information you are looking for.
