My husband says that of the entire list of people they see each month maybe 1 out of 100 get paroled.

It may seem like that but that's not the case. Parole rates have significantly increased in the past 5 years. I've seen statistics and for 2017, about 73% of offenders we're paroled.

I was blessed to have had a meeting with the new executive director Dean Williams last week. I did talk to him about parole. He indicated he is working with his administration to determine why offenders are not being paroled and also why so many offenders are being held past their PED. He indicated he has a meeting this week with members of the parole board. On that note, there is also a new chairperson of the parole board. Joe Morales stepped down and John Odell retired so there are a lot of changes on the board.

The full board works with what they are provided with by the case manager as well as what is in the offender's file.If you have someone that's taking classes and programming the way they should, I think they will be fair. However, if you have someone that's not working or doing any type of improvement to themselves they see that as well. It also depends on how much time the offender has done on the sentence.

There are seven board members and in order to be approved for parole four of the seven members must approve parole.

So my husband completed the program he was supposed to do... TWICE. Guess what? Because he was thrown back in because he couldn't manage a 35+ hour a week job + 6 counseling sessions a week and WALKING to all of that, plus homework for all those counseling sessions, he is now back in prison and won't be eligible for parole again until he completes program for the THIRD time.

He's been in 17 on a 4 yr minimum.

There's nothing fair about Colorado parole.

You are right and community corrections is hard... my son has had some thoughts about going back because it is hard mentally to be there. He at least can work and be on the outside but you get so many writeups for things you aren't even involved in...its a circus. Now his sponsor pulled out and he has no where to go so he might not get out in a month and he is devastated.
