parole release criteria
Parole involves inmate release before the expiration of the court-imposed sentence, with a period of inmate supervision that must be completed successfully, based on conditions and terms imposed by the commission. Parole affects the size of the prison population and discipline within the facility. Parole remains controversial and has experienced a number of changes over the years.
