March 2018 Schedule of Public Comment Session

by Ashley Maxwell — last modified Nov 29, 2017 10:47 AM

The Prisoner Review Board hereby announces the schedule of public comment sessions to be held in MARCH 2018. 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 APRIL 2018. 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 MAY 2018. 

We will not be conducting a Public Comments Session in April at the standard 3 locations listed below, but will be holding a session in western Kansas, in Hays. More information is to follow. If there is an offender who would be on the April Public Comments list (May hearing, June-Parole Eligible), then you can attend a session in March to provide statements in support or opposition. Otherwise, you are welcome to mail in any statements you wish to convey to the Board.

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 STREET, 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.
