Ohio Department of Rehabilitation and Correction Parole Board Guidelines

OHIO PAROLE BOARD GUIDELINES MANUAL- RESCINDED APRIL 1, 2010

The Ohio Parole Board is rescinding its use of the Ohio Parole Board Guidelines Manual at all parole release consideration hearings, effective April 1, 2010.  Given the dramatic transformation of Ohio’s parole eligible population since the passage of Senate Bill 2, coupled with the current process of reviewing most parole eligible inmates by a majority of Board Members prior to release, use of the Manual is no longer practical or effective.  The Board will continue to give every inmate meaningful consideration for parole, and exercise its discretionary releasing authority by utilizing the Ohio statutory and Administrative Code provisions, which have essentially remained unchanged since 1975.

A description of the parole release consideration hearing process is included in the new Ohio Parole Board Handbook.

To obtain a copy of the Ohio Parole Board Handbook (23 pages) you may download this document as a PDF file from this site.  Note:  You must have Adobe Acrobat Reader to view this document.
