Pardons and Paroles Board issues response

Pardons and Paroles Board issues response

The Alabama Board of Pardons and Paroles has sent its response to Gov. Kay Ivey and Attorney General Steve Marshall for how it plans to correct issues with early paroles and errant victim’s family notifications.

Back in October, Ivey put a 75-day moratorium on early paroles, changed the Board’s leadership, and ordered a plan of corrective action after criticism mounted of the Board’s pattern of releasing inmates for parole early and failing to properly victims’ families.

Ivey and Marshall were dissatisfied with the Board’s first draft, saying it had “too many unanswered questions.”

The new, updated plan proposes revising how early parole candidates are reviewed and hiring a consultant to see what changes need to be made within the organization.
