HCS/HB 352 - This act provides, upon serving thirty years or more of his or her sentence, an offender over the age of 65 is entitled to a parole hearing if the offender satisfies specific requirements detailed in the act. If a parole hearing is conducted under the provisions of this act, the Parole Board must first determine whether there is a reasonable probability that the offender will not violate the law upon release, and therefore is eligible for release based upon a finding that the offender meets specific criteria listed in the act. Finally, the act requires any offender granted parole under these provisions to be placed on a minimum of five years supervision by the Board of Probation and Parole.
