Question What happens when an offender violates his parole?

Answer When a parole officer determines that an individual released to parole supervision may have violated the conditions of release, either by committing a new crime or failing to adhere to the conditions of release, the Parole Board's regulations provide for the issuing of a detainer warrant. If a warrant is issued, the releasee will be arrested and detained in a local jail awaiting the outcome of a parole violation hearing. If the charges alleging a violation of parole are not sustained at the violation hearing, the warrant will be lifted and the releasee restored to supervision. If the violation charges are sustained, the releasee may be ordered returned to state prison or referred to an alternative treatment facility - such as the Willard Drug Treatment Campus - for a duration of time to be determined by the Board of Parole.
