Section 15-22-33 - Discharge From Parole; Relief From Reports; Permission to Leave State or County.
Discharge from parole; relief from reports; permission to leave state or county.
No person released on parole shall be discharged from parole prior to the expiration of the full maximum term for which he or she was sentenced unless the Board of Pardons and Paroles chooses to discharge the parolee earlier based on review of the parolee under guidelines established pursuant to subdivision (6) of subsection (b) of Section 15-22-37 and the parolee was not convicted of a violent offense, as defined in Section 12-25-32, or a violation of Section 13A-8-2.1. The Board of Pardons and Paroles, however, may relieve a prisoner on parole from making further reports and may permit such prisoner to leave the state or county if satisfied that this is for the best interests of society.
