Default Eligibility of Parole question in Alabama??

Say someone is sentenced to life with the possibility of parole after 30 years on a Class A charge.


The "law" (unsure if law, or just policy) of the Pardons and Parole board in Alabama allows a review for parole on Class A felonies after 15 years.

Are they eligible for review after 30 years like the judge sentenced or 15 years as allowed by the Pardon and Paroles Board?

The only law that I am currently aware of with a minimum mandatory 30 years is for juveniles convicted of capital offenses. Many of the juveniles were originally sentenced to death, then overturned to life without parole. Now, they're being re-sentenced to life with the possibility of parole after 30 years. As far as the rule you're questioning, I think you're referring to what's known as a "parole setup" requiring the offender to serve x number of years prior to parole consideration. That wouldn't apply to a juvenile with a capital conviction to my knowledge.
