Under existing law, if a parolee violates parole, the Board of Pardons and Parole may either reinstate parole or require the parolee to serve the remainder of his or her sentence in prison
This bill would provide that if the revocation is based on the commission of a new crime, except for certain traffic offenses, the parolee may be required to serve out his or her sentence in prison. This bill would provide that for technical violations, the parolee may be required to serve not more than 90 days in prison before parole is reinstated. This bill would be retroactively applied to individuals whose parole was revoked due to a technical violation
To amend Section 15-22-32 of the Code of Alabama 1975, relating to the revocation of parole; to provide for alternative punishment options for parole revocations that are not based on the commission of a new crime; and to provide for retroactive application to an individual whose parole was revoked due to a technical violation prior to the effective date of this act.
