Representative Sample of Parole Cases

Each case is different. All facts are different. Each individual’s history is different. You should not interpret these examples to mean that you will succeed or fail at a parole review.
 
Each Parole Board presentation is based on the unique circumstances of the client and his particular situation.  
 
It is possible for two prisoners with identical offenses and/or sentences and similar criminal histories to have two different results.
