Exclamation Fairness for Families Parole Handbook

The Georgia Parole Board is a law unto itself and, no, it is not fair.

Fairness for Prisoners’ Families has produced a couple of handbooks, one of which is on parole.


Please note the handbook is almost 200 pages.

It has chapters on:

1. The basics of parole decisions
2. The pre-parole investigations : Getting the information used for parole decisions
3. The parole decision guidelines grid system
4. Grid system parole decisions
5. Parole review
6. What does and does not tend to influence the parole board’s decisions
7. Parole ineligibility


The handbook is not an official document written or published by the Georgia State Board of Pardons and Paroles. The Parole Board’s only contribution to the handbook was to grant informal interviews to representatives of Georgians for Equal Justice with various Parole Board staff members. The Parole Board has not confirmed the accuracy of the information found in this handbook. For information from the Parole Board on the parole consideration process or a specific person’s parole eligibility, call the Parole Board at 404-656-5651.

Hope this is of help to some of you.

As a lifer, my man’s got another 3 years before we are up again, despite the Attorney General saying he wanted 20 years from him. Well, he’s getting a minimum of 24 years because the Parole Board aren’t interested in what the Attorney General said – it has no bearing!
