PAROLE REVOCATION PROCESS

 

INTRODUCTION

The 1972 U.S. Supreme Court decision in Morrissey v. Brewer established “due process” requirements for revoking parole, creating an administrative hearing process before a neutral and detached officer.  This led to the creation of Hearing Operations in 1980 to provide specialized hearing officers who have the training and understanding of “due process” requirements needed to conduct required hearings.  All the information in this section applies to those released on either parole or mandatory supervision
