No Parole Board hearing, three parolees released

Posted: Updated:

Guam - Three parolees who were detained for parole violations have been released because the Guam Parole Board failed to meet. For a third time, the board had no quorum due to three of the six members being off-island.  The law states that parolees must be released after 60 days if they don't go before the board for a hearing.

As of last month, there were 91 parolees who were waiting to be heard by the board.  Department of Corrections officials say that those who are released still have to appear before the board at a later time to answer to the original charges so a determination can be made whether their parole will be revoked.

Based on the law though, they cannot be incarcerated for more than 60 days without the hearing. There's no word on when the board will have quorum to meet.
