Discretionary parole occurs when the Parole Board grants parole before the offender completes his or her sentence. Parole Board members grant discretionary parole when, after carefully reviewing all available information, they determine that an offender is suitable to be paroled. Mandatory parole is the automatic release of an offender six months before completion of his or her sentence. Unlike discretionary parole decisions, the Parole Board does not vote on this type of parole as it is established by law. Special conditions can be imposed upon mandatory release, if the Board deems that additional supervision is required for the release. more
