Arrow Mississippi State Parole Board - and Eligibility Information

State of Mississippi Parole Board:
http://www.mpb.state.ms.us/

Depending on an inmate’s sentence, some inmates are eligible to serve part of their sentence on parole. Although an inmate may be eligible for parole, it is not a guarantee that the inmate will be granted parole.


A list of all inmates eligible for parole is generated by the Mississippi Department of Corrections and sent to the Mississippi Parole Board. The cases of the inmates on the list are reviewed by the Parole Board and a decision is made to grant or deny a parole hearing.

At a parole hearing, the inmate’s file is reviewed, including any rule violations during incarceration.

Listed below are the three main recent laws that affect the current inmate population:

Parole Eligible/Earned Release
- Crimes committed before June 30, 1995
- offenders were required to serve 25% of their sentence
- eligible for parole after 25% of time served
- offender can “flat time” after serving only 50% of their sentence
(offender is eligible for release)
- Sex offenders, habitual offenders or offenders with life sentences are not eligible

Truth in Sentencing
- Crimes committed from July 1, 1995 – December 31, 1999
- every offender must serve 85% of their sentence in incarceration
- remaining 15% of sentence served on in Community Services under ERS supervision

First Time Nonviolent Offenders Eligibility (Senate Bill 3028)
- Crimes committed from January 1, 2000 - current
- passed by the legislature March 12, 2001
- non-violent first time offenders must serve 25% of their sentence in incarceration, then eligible for parole consideration

Example reasons that contribute to parole denial include:
  • Serious nature of offense
  • Number of offenses committed
  • Psychological and/or psychiatric history
  • Recent/pending disciplinary action
  • Community opposition
  • Insufficient time served
  • Prior misdemeanor or felony conviction (s)
  • Police and/or juvenile record
  • History of drug or alcohol abuse

My love has been locked up for the last 4 years for homicide and has a life sentence with parole. Everytime he comes up for parole, it always comes back as denied and it seems as if the parole board always use the same answer for why his parole was denied. I have copies of all the paper work from when he went up in front of the parole board. These last three years we have been together, he has gotten his GED, completed several trades, do you think its a chance that he will make parole when he comes up in June? He has NO write ups and I'm constantly on his case about staying out of trouble so he can come home. What do you think his chances are?

You must improve on what he was denied on.

If it was no community support - then got pastors, lawyers, friends, family to write recommendation letters.

Not served enough time - you cannot do much about

The letters are a good thinkg to do regardless - as that will help him. His chances varys - also depends on if he has anyone writing the parole board from a victims point of view - which if they write and show objection to his release then he would likely be denied.

Default Letters

Hey Jonathan,

My fiance has been placed on the docket for early release and be placed on house arrest(ISP). She is still waiting for approval from a certain committee with decision. Approval or not should be soon. The date for release is June 13, 2009.

I have a few questions. Will her release be granted when she is still awaiting A/D program to start in September? Will approval be denied if A/D is court ordered?

Per this info, if denied would a letter form me or my attorney be helpful in putting her on ISP on the June date? Regarding letter after non-approval could we suggest doing A/D outside at a state funded certified center? This would also be long term A/D program.

Final question, who would the letter go to at CMCF, head of House Arrest Committee? This letter would not mention the court ordered issue or parole date set. If denied it would only include a request base on her MET( good behavior, no RVR's).

I pray each day that she is approved.

Thanks for a reply.

Regards,

maddogg10

The court order A/D can b a tricky thing. Does the court order say attend or complete? If it just states attend, I've seen inmates go 2 or 3 weeks and be shipped out. It is possible to do your A/D treatment on the outside, while on ISP or parole.

My boyfriend has been in prison for 4 years in the past. He is now serving 10 more years. 5 for attempted grand larceny, and 5 for jail escape. He is at SMCI and is serving 30/30. What are the chances of him getting parole? What if he sucesfully completes the drug rehab in there, will that be of help for him getting paroled?

He was sentenced in 04 for shoplifting, violated probation, 3 year sentence with credit for time served, and has 269 days according to MDOC inwhich he is getting credit. With the first felony it was for selling drugs, its 13 years old, and he was released, no time served, 2 years probation ended in 97. both charges are for nonviolets, does he have to serve more time since he has 2 felonys? Thanks

He should be eligible for Parole - however it is much harder to receive if he has 2 felony's as well as violating probation.

The parole board looks at all prior charges - and the State of Mississippi now looks at selling drugs as a violent crime.

Hope this information helps some , I would also suggest calling the Parole board and asking them for information.

Default Parole

Just found out my friend has a parole date on paper? Two years exactly from his arrest date? That would be 25%. What's up with that Jonathan? I did not think it applied to him? I know they do not have to parole him, but I find that date very odd. What do you think?

ERS - Earned Release Supervision - is good time earned through working specifically classified jobs you earn that over time.

Parole is where a committee decides your release depending upon what you have completed and done while in prison

Unfortunately with a Jail Escape charge he does not have a good chance of getting Paroled out of prison, he also will not be eligible for A custody, and many of the other early release options because of that charge.

My fiance is serving 16 yrs for Possession of firearm by a convicted felon and attempting to sell same firearm. All of which he is guilty. They also charged him with burglary, of which he is not. In the end he did a plea agreement with them. He had been out of prison for 12 yrs. when this all came about. Kept a job and provided for his family throughout that 12 yrs. Got into no trouble. He has been in for two yrs now with no write ups or problems. When would he be eliglble for parole?

Dear All locked up,
It was my experience that because of his previous felony he might had to serve 85% of his current sentence. My b/f had this problem. Good luck

Dear Jonathan,

I would like to know what my husband chances of getting parole. He has 1 possession of a firearm charge and 2 simple possession to cocaine. He was sentenced to 13 years. He has served 2 years already. He is A restricted, currently attending Drug and Alcohol and has been RVR free for 2 years. Furthermore, do you know what method of selecting the inmates the parole board is going by. The new law requires nonviolent offenders to do 1/4 of their time so 1/4 of 13 will be 3 years and a couple of months and if that's the case in August of this year he will have done 4 years and some odd months with his trusty time. So what do you think we need to do about getting him to go before the parole board?

To answer the first questions:

He will receive a parole date on his time sheet - you must go by that:

Granny - I will post pictures of Parchman soon!

You can't get it.

A gentleman who has been incarcerated for for a little over thirteen years would like to know if it is possible to petition the Parole Board for consideration any earlier than his eligibility in 3 1/2 years.

Does anyone know?
