Parole Board; parole review; sentencing guidelines. Requires the Parole Board to base its parole decision for any person eligible and under consideration for and seeking parole for whom the Virginia Criminal Sentencing Commission has determined, or who otherwise demonstrates, that his time served has exceeded the midpoint of the sentencing guidelines solely on relevant post-sentencing information, including the person's history, character, and conduct while in prison.
