SB 114 Juvenile Offenders; Parole Eligibility

Today Senator Begich introduced SB114; Juvenile Offenders; Parole Eligibility.


A copy of the Bill language can be viewed here: http://www.akleg.gov/PDF/32/Bills/SB0114A.PDF.

This Bill, if passed, would allow juveniles tried as adults an opportunity for a discretionary parole review after serving the first 15 years of their sentencing. It does NOT guarantee parole, however it does allow the applicant a meaningful opportunity for review to gauge readiness for parole. If denied, the parole board may review the applicant again after two years.


All letters of support should be emailed directly to the Senate Judiciary Committee Senate.Judiciary@akleg.gov and Senate State Affairs Senate.State.Affairs@akleg.gov.


I will post an update once the Bill is scheduled to be heard in committee.
