Adelup working on Parole Board appointees

Posted: Updated:

Guam - It seems there's still no definite timeframe when the Guam Parole Board will have a quorum to hold its meetings. The Department of Corrections has had to inform at least 20 parolees that they could not go up for parole, because the board does not have enough active members to hold a meeting.

In response Acting Governor Ray Tenorio says he is going to work to find somebody to fill the positions. "There have been a great number of people who have served in that capacity and it's not an easy job. It's also sometimes not easy to find members so I'll be working with the governor when he returns and even in the meantime to address the needs of the parole board to be able to look for qualified candidates who can commit the time," he said.

The Parole Board has not met for the past two months, as DepCor officials say there are only three active sitting members. Legislation recently signed into law changed the composition of the board now requiring four members to have quorum.
