Default Can he refuse parole?

My son is in prison in California, his earliest release/parole date is 01-2022. He's in for armed robbery, burglary and vehicle theft. Can he refuse parole, stay in and finish his sentence and be released without a tail? He has to do 80%, so that would leave him doing the remaining 14 months. This question may have been asked on here before but I couldn't find it.

Welcome to Prison Talk. I hope someone who knows will answer your question about CA parole versus serving out the sentence.

I do not believe they can *term out* so to speak. At least not any longer.

He'd still have parole, even if he finished his term.
It used to be that way. You could do your whole bid and then not have parole/supervision.


edit. I am not sure now. Just tried looking it up and it was unclear. He'd have to ask his counselor. Or if you can get a copy of his sentencing paperwork it may say something in that.

This is not possible in the State of California from everything I have read. All prison terms conclude with a period of supervision. There is no legal way around it. Refusal just puts it off.

I asked my hub this when he was getting ready to finish his term. I dont know if its accurate or not, but he told me he would have had to stay in there his whole parole term.

Which sounds insane. Or maybe I just didnt understand him when he said that.

Basically the ol' "we can watch you out there for several years, or we can watch you in here for several years, but either way, we're gonna watch you."
