View Full Version : Insight into Parole Board

04-23-2009, 03:57 PM
My son is eligible for parole/be released on July 7; however, he was just informed his pb hearing is not even scheduled until end of July. Last year they scheduled his hearing a month before his eligible release date and he met with his IPO a month prior to that, so the timeline made sense and took into consideration the administrative/paperwork timeframe if they granted him parole. He's at a minimum/pre-release. His caseworker's response to his request to move his hearing to June was "tough shit; take it up with the parole board". Would it do any good for me to contact the PB, explain the timeline, request an earlier date, or would this just make it worse for my son? Any insight into how to deal with the PB in general would be greatly appreciated. :)
