The Prisoner Review Board hereby announces the schedule of public comment sessions to be held in November via Zoom Webinar.  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 December 2021 and January 2022.  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 January/February 2022.  Meetings will be conducted on the dates and  as indicated below:

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.
