Default Question about parole boards

Help me settle an argument.

When deciding whether or not to parole someone, can the parole board use information that was not admissible in that case in Court? Such as priors, past similar behavior, or anything else?

I think they do in my state. They even let the victim testify, or their relatives if the victim is dead. And their behavior while in prison comes into play, and of course that was not evidence available at the original trial. Just that fact wins the argument for you.

That may depend on where you're from.

From what I've seen around here none of that matters. The deciding factor appears to be whether you are useful to them or not.

Yes they can. Parole boards have access to inmates files. Everything they have done is in that file. So knowledge of past history, both in prison and what they did to get there, is a large deciding factor in granting someone parole.

It may vary, but yes they can. The parole hearing isn't tied to the crime you're currently in prison for, it is more about you as an overall person, and whether you're going to continue to be a felon on the outside.
