Default Article: Board Illegally Denying Lifers Parole

California’s No-Parole Policy:
Old-School Lifers Held Decades Beyond Their Release Dates
By Boston Woodard

Thousands of California state prisoners serving a "term to life" sentence with the possibility of parole have had their commitments illegally enhanced to life without the possibility of parole.

Without the benefit of legal representation or a new trial, these prisoners are being held years, even decades beyond their prescribed (by law) release date. Term to Life prisoners (TLPs) are also referred to as "old-school lifers," "seven to lifers," or "7-Upers."
