August 2020 Schedule of Public Comment Sessions

by CJ Perez last modified Aug 03, 2020 04:52 PM
NOTICE: The Kansas City public comment session will not be held in August. August sessions for Derby and Topeka are as indicated in the schedule below. Please utilize the Public Comment Forms in support or opposition in regard to offenders included on the August docket. Please mail to the address provided below by no later than Friday, August 28th. E-mail correspondence may be directed to KDOC_PRB_Public_Comment@ks.gov

The Prisoner Review Board hereby announces the schedule of public comment sessions to be held in August 2020.  These specific comment sessions are held so that comments can be received from any interested citizens concerning inmates who are entitled by law to a parole hearing during the month of September 2020. The attached list shows the county of convictions, which is not necessarily the inmate’s home, nor the county to which the inmate would return if granted parole. If parole is granted, the earliest the inmate could be released from incarceration would be in October 2020.  Meetings will be conducted on the dates and locations as indicated below: 

*Please be advised that those interested in an alternative option to submitting a public comment to the Prisoner Review Board other than attending an in-person session or through written correspondence, may do so by contacting PRB staff at KDOC_PRB_Public_Comment@ks.gov.  Please include your name, the name of the offender and the relationship to the case/offender in the e-mail.  Upon receipt, you will receive an e-mail confirmation as well as additional information regarding this option.  

 *If planning to attend, please note that the following guidelines will be in place:-

- Adherence to social distancing practices

- Wearing masks 

- Limited to 2 people in the meeting room at a time to provide comments to the PRB regarding the offender's parole eligibility 

*Please note that plans to hold public comment sessions may change unexpectedly.  Please continue to refer to this site, which will be continually updated to reflect any additional updates.

The Prisoner Review Board is interested in knowing the view of citizens concerning the possible parole of these inmates. Any citizen who would like to express comments on these inmates, but is unable to attend one of the Public Comment Sessions, may send a letter to: KANSAS DEPARTMENT OF CORRECTIONS, PRISONER REVIEW BOARD; 714 SW JACKSON, SUITE 300;  TOPEKA, KS 66603.

Inmates are required by law to receive a hearing when they become parole eligible. Parole eligibility is not necessarily the same as parole suitability. In determining parole suitability, the Parole Board considers the following ten areas: 1) crime; 2) prior criminal history; 3) program participation; 4) disciplinary record; 5) reports of physical/mental examinations; 6) comments received from the victim, the public and criminal justice officials; 7) prison capacity; 8) input from staff where offender is housed; 9) proportionality to sentence guidelines; and 10) risk factors revealed by any risk assessment
