The Board's authority to release adults in custody (AIC) is limited. The Board does not have the authority to consider Early Medical Release for the following population:
The Board may advance the release date of an AIC, if it is in the best interest of the AIC and society, and the AIC is:
(a) Suffering from a severe medical condition including terminal illness; or
(b) Elderly and permanently incapacitated in such a manner that the prisoner is unable to move from place to place without the assistance of another person
The process can take several weeks to several months. The Board of Parole is unlikely to release anyone who does not have a safe placement in the community secured prior to release. Reviewing medical documentation and getting feedback from DOC also takes time. For more frequently asked questions on this process please click here
