§ 2515. Length of Parole.
(a) General. The department shall establish the length of parole for ISL prisoners released on retroactively calculated DSL release dates and for DSL prisoners. The board shall establish the length of parole for ISL prisoners released on ISL parole dates, non-life 1168 prisoners and life prisoners. The board may waive parole for any prisoner and may review, upon request, the length of parole set by the department (see s 2525-s 2526).
The board shall discharge a prisoner who has a three-year period of parole within 30 days following one year on continuous parole, unless the board finds good cause to retain the parolee on parole. The board shall discharge a parolee who has a five-year period of parole within 30 days following three years on continuous parole, unless the board finds good cause to retain the parolee on parole. A parolee has been on continuous parole if he/she has not absconded parole supervision or had parole revoked since initial release on parole. Any time during which the parolee has absconded from supervision while on parole or during a period of revocation shall not be credited to the period of parole.
The parole period may be extended pursuant to revocation proceedings. The parole period shall be extended for an amount of time equal to that ordered as the revocation period. The extension of the period of parole pursuant to revocation shall not exceed the maximum period of parole.
