Is the Board keeping you on parole?

The Board seems intent on continuing parolees on parole as long as possible. In late 2018, my office filed a Petition for Writ of Habeas Corpus challenging the Board's decision to continue my client on parole "due to the gravity of the commitment offense." The San Diego Superior Court issued an Order to Show Cause (OSC), and the writ was pending when the Board "suddenly" decided to discharge my client from parole earlier this week. It is my opinion that the Board knew that they were going to lose this case in court, so they discharged my client in order to render our writ moot. I realize that most folks do not have the resources to hire private counsel to file in court against the Board, but I hope that this account encourages each parolee to realize that you have rights and that there is hope. -Marc
