Amanda Thomann 05-28-08 Corr 101 Parole Parole is the status of an offender conditionally released from a confinement facility, prior to the expiration of his of her sentence, and placed under the supervision of a parole agency. (Allen, 2007, pg. 471) As learned in the lecture, another way to define parole is an early release from prison with conditions. The creation of the indeterminate sentence has created some leeway for the option of parole for many offenders. With an indeterminate sentence, a minimum and maximum sentence is outlined for a specific crime. The time between the minimum and maximum time allotment allows an inmate the option of parole. One would argue that paroling an inmate has advantages and disadvantages. One thing is for sure, releasing a prisoner is definitely more cost effective. The responsibility of the state to provide shelter, food, clothing, medical care, and other necessities costs is very costly to the public.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
