The Parole Board (Old Law) - Five member board appointed by the Governor to serve four-year terms. The authority to grant parole, deny parole, detain parole violators and to revoke parole are given by the Virginia General Assembly (State Legislators). Virginia New Parole Board (2011)
Parole Eligibility (Old Law)
Inmates who committed their offenses before January 1, 1995, may be eligible for parole consideration. These inmates will be brought into the Department of Corrections to serve their sentences, provided the sentence is more than 2 years of felony time or a combination of felony and misdemeanor convictions totaling more than 2 years.
The parole eligibility date represents the date on which the inmate becomes eligible to be considered for parole. Having a parole hearing does not guarantee that parole will be granted. Being granted parole does not indicate instantaneous release. If parole is granted the inmate will be released as soon as all administrative work is completed. All parolees receive parole supervision after incarceration. If parole is not granted, then the inmate will be eligible for reconsideration, each year, within the same quarter as the original parole eligibility date. For more information on parole or parole inquiries see Parole Board.
