Parole, in "Eighteenth Annual Review of Criminal Procedure: United States Supreme Court and Court of Appeals, 1987-88"
O'Connor, Erin O'Hara, 1965-
The purpose of parole is to integrate prisoners into society by allowing them to serve a portion of their sentences outside prison. While on parole, the parolee is subject to the continuing supervision of a parole or probation officer and to the conditions and rules imposed. These conditions may significantly restrain the parolee's freedom. If a parolee violates a parole condition, the parole may be revoked and the parolee reincarcerated.
