As if the criminal courts are not busy enough effective July 1, 2013 Superior Court judges will now be required to conduct all parole hearings as of July 1, 2013. For the past several decades these hearings were conducted by the Department of Corrections hearing officers. However, under the new court realignment that began October 1, 2011 this task will now be required to be handled by judges.


There is already great concern as to what impact that this change will have on the already severely overcrowded criminal court system. A total of 40,000 parole revocations were heard by the Board of Parole Hearings from January to June, 2012. While it is anticipated the total will go down somewhat due to the court realignment, there will be still be a major impact on the court system when this takes effect on July 1, 2013.

We will monitor this situation when it takes effect and this will make it even more important for a person facing a parole violation to retain an experienced criminal defense law firm like Wallin and Klarich to assist them.
