I have seem people post something similar before and I think it is just another rumor. It would be nice and help many people if it was true, but I think it is a rumor.

I havent heard of it, but thats not saying it isnt so. Hopefully someone else will come along with more knowledge. If all else fails call the DOC and ask them.

The problem as I see it is that there is so much politics involved. Most of the parole board is liberal, but we also have some strong conservatives who are backing up their very conservative prosecutors in their counties. And, some board members are also conservative. So, if an inmate happens to be on the wrong end of this spectrum, they could easily do an extra several years,
