I’m not able to answer if it’s fair or not yet but I do know it’s not fair that the people entering in their sentence at diagnostic are not checked behind…to the prisoners that get stuck in the system for longer than intended, it’s not fair that their only looked at once 6 months out from their tpm. My loved one is past his tpm but years, literally but due to a careless error at diagnosti, his sentence is completely wrong and he can’t get anyone to fix it or even look at his sentence information to see that it’s messed up.
I would like to see them speak to each individual they deserve to be heard and to refine themselves
I believe the parole board should meet with incarcerated individuals face to face and give those individuals an opportunity to speak for themselves. They need an opportunity to redefine themselves as the men and women they have become while incarcerated, and not by the crimes they committed in their pasts.
I believe the parole board should grant parole when it first comes up for an incarcerated person if they have met certain criteria while incarcerated. Otherwise, what's the point of having a TPM that will only get denied? It's a cruel system that traumatizes the incarcerated, setting their hopes up for release only to be denied repeatedly.
I believe the parole board should consider the incarcerated individual's support system when making a decision for parole. If the parole board can see that the individual has family members and friends, a church or other organization, waiting for them to come home, then they should grant parole. The parole board's decision should not be influenced by victims. The time for victims to be heard is during hearings, trials, and sentencing.
I believe incarcerated individuals who have stayed out of trouble and completed their required programs should not have to max out. Again, why have TPM dates if they're just going to be denied over and over?
I understand that there's a chart with severity levels and the number of years an individual must serve based on their crime severity level. This system needs to be abolished. It doesn't take the individual person into consideration. If an incarcerated individual completely turns their life around in prison and has the proof to show it, then give them a second chance. Don't let a chart determine their future; let their behaviors and actions while in prison determine their eligibility for parole.
No it is not fair my brother in law has went up for parole twice and got denied. He has did 11 years already and has a job lined up and a place too stay.
also my husband was found guilty on charges they had no proof of him doing them and they gave him the longest time and he was the youngest out of the group of people who actually did it. He has a house job car and 5 kids waiting on him to come home
My husband has at least 10 or more certificates and is working on getting another trade.
I don't believe they are fair for theses reasons. One, they need to actually start letting the individual come in front of them so therefore they can get a more accurate decision because they not getting to actually hear they release plans, Questions like do they got support systems, Jobs lined up, transportation to get around. But instead they see that they joined a gang 15 years ago and no matter what ill that person is free can't get it off they record I know this for a fact I've tried it does not work. Or they got a disciplinary report because of a crooked CO had a personal vendetta against them. My thing is they could even do video calls to get a better judgement but they don't, they just do things they think
No we Do not believe that the Pardons and Parole Boards are fair. We have proof from the Arresting Agency& the DA’s Office they have no DNA , Blood/Hair Follicles (hair, pubic hair follicles) of any kind and no Rape Kit and/or Discovery Packet to link My husband to these crimes he has served for 33 years. This is proof that we will get him released out on Parole we then begin working on get him exonerated!
