Description

Parole; investigation prior to release; notice to victim. Requires the Parole Board to contact all victims of a crime for which a prisoner is incarcerated and eligible for parole and notify them that they may request that the Board only notify the victim if, following its review, the Board is inclined to grant parole to the prisoner, in which case the victim shall have 45 days to present written or oral testimony for the Board's consideration. Current law states that a victim may request notification only if the Board is inclined to grant parole, but does not require the Board to notify victims of such option. Read the Bill »
