The field report will be done by a parole officer in the county where he committed his crime. It includes a detailed account of his crime (usually prosecutors reports & court records are used) and his past criminal history. You can contact the parole office in the county where he committed his crime to find out if it's been completed. A list is sent out to the Area Manager & the field report is assigned to an officer. Aside from the institutional record, it is the only information that the parole board has to go by.
Hope this helps!

My brother is in Grimes as well, and he is on a 6 year sentence. His estimated PE/TE date has moved up to Jan 31,2004. Everyone that he was supposed to speak with to get out, he spoke with in early Dec. This included the parole officer, and various other officals here where I am at. They've moved his date up 2 times since he's been in. Just hang in there, it's all going to work out.
