  • Parole board must justify denials

    RICHMOND — Starting this summer, the state’s Parole Board will have to justify why it has denied a prisoner’s petition for release under a bill that passed the General Assembly last month.
    HB2103 requires the board to conduct a “timely and thorough review” of parole petitions and, if denied, to provide specific reasons.
    Virginia did away with parole in 1995, but several thousand prison inmates – about 4,500 in 2012 – sentenced prior to that remain eligible for early release each year.
