Use the Parole Decision Maker to calculate the likelihood of conditional release following a hypothetical inmate's prison sentence. In Canada, the possibility of becoming eligible for parole generally becomes possible after 1/3rd of the offender's sentence. In the US, this date differs from state to state, although it is frequently similar. *Note: This is in no way an official assessment of an offender's eligibility. It is an educated estimate based on previously documented parole decisions and related but relevant research. It is not meant to be a reliable, accurate, or consistent judgment, only an educative tool for interested individuals. This Decision Maker may also be updated from time to time to include additional information for greater accuracy. For more information, contact the webmaster.
