Under existing law, when a parolee under the supervision of the Board of Pardons and Paroles has violated a condition of parole, other than being arrested or convicted of a new offense or absconding, the parole court may recommend and the board may impose a term of confinement of no more than 45 days
Also under existing law, a parolee may spend time in holding prior to the board imposing a term of confinement for a violation of a condition of parole
This bill would provide that a parolee shall receive a reduction of the term of confinement imposed by the board for time spent in holding, pending the imposition of the period of confinement
This bill also would apply retroactively to any person currently serving a period of confinement for violating a condition of parole
Relating to parole violations, to amend Section 15-22-32, Code of Alabama 1975; to provide that a parolee who violates a condition of parole shall receive a reduction of the term of confinement imposed by the Board of Pardons and Paroles for time spent in holding pending the imposition of the period of confinement.
