There is usually 3 times in which they go up before parole...
One is a couple of months prior to their earliest release date, the next time is before their conditional release date, and the third attempt is usually right before their max release date..
Earliest release date is usuall the minimum amount of time the judge has given them for their crime. i.e. someone sentenced 1-3yrs earliest release date will be at 1year. So you would see the board a couple of months (most likely 3months) before release.

Conditional release date would be at 2yrs, the "middle amount of time" on their sentence. They usually get out here if they have had good before and didn't make the board for their earliest release date..

Maximum release date is the maximum time given to an inmate by the judge...Well if they didn't make it out the first 2times this is when they will be released...
This is only true if and only if they have not caught any new charges that may exceed the time they have spent incarcerated from the time the new charges occured.

If they have i.e. originally served 1-3yrs, caught a charge of possession of illegal substance and received 5-10yrs then they will have to serve an additional 2yrs before going before the board..

Hope I was helpfull!!

Maybe someone knows - I was just sentenced to 70 months, no range of time but 70 months - I know there is good time, but does parole apply to federal cases? Is there any chance I could get out sooner? Thanks for any info

In the federal system, there is no parole.

Federal parole was eliminated in 1984 for an offense that had taken place after 01 November 1987. There is parole for offenses committed prior to that date, but only that. Agencies are trying to get federal parole restored, but it's not making much headway.

My husband went to prison in 1994..he commited his crime in District of Columbia and he said that he is under the "old law"...he is in a federal prison. Then why is he going back and forth to a parole board if there is no board? he go back again in January...that must be something different then

If he's under the old law, then that would mean he would have had to have committed the crime prior 1 Nov 1987. It's possible that as the District of Columbia is not a state, that they have different rulings with regards to federal prison time, and that would allow him to have parole. Haven't checked into it that far as none of the Offenders I ever dealt with had that problem.

Dumb question, what is the difference between sate prision and federal prison. if i was offered a plea, would it say federal if it was in federal prison? I got a plea of 4 years in state (first offense, grand theft). and im trying to read up on what to expect as the case goes on and if i am forced to take that plea what the reality of it will be, even though i know each case is different.

Essentially, it boils down to one thing: If it were federal, you would be in a federal courthouse for the trial and sentencing part.
