Default Pre board recommendation in Idaho

So my friend goes to board in November but it's a closed executive session so he won't actually see anyone they will just review his paperwork. He was informed today that the pre board person is not going to recommend his release. He has been in for a drinking violation for 4 years. He has since been told now a violation like that is no big deal. He has completed everything they asked him to do plus some and not had any dors while he's been there so I don't really understand how they can recommend him not to be released when he hasn't gotten in any trouble. How much weight does this report hold in the actual hearing or does the board look at the other paperwork and base their decision on that?

Unfortunately, without the opportunity to actually appear before the Board in person and explain himself, chances are they are going to weigh that pre-board recommendation pretty heavily. They don't usually deviate from those pre-board recommendations very often, unless the offender has a chance to appear before them in person (which only happens for more serious/violent crimes) and can have his loved ones show up to argue in his favor and make his case for overriding the pre-board report.

You say he's in there currently on a drinking violation (I assume you mean he violated parole for drinking and pissing dirty, or was it something more serious like drunken driving or something?) -- what was his original offense? Often times the Board takes a look at the whole picture and may require the offender to take classes/programs that address his ENTIRE criminal history, not just the instant offense that landed him in on a parole violation.

Has he completed all his recommended programs? Staying DOR-free is definitely a plus, but they should have actually told him at his original revoke hearing what all they wanted him to bring back to Board in 4 years, so if he didn't do all of that, that could be why they are recommending he be flopped at this point in time.
