1. Parole A person on parole is allowed to live and work in a community but under certain restrictions, such as reporting to a parole officer on a regular basis. Other restrictions may include prohibitions against drinking, driving, changing jobs, moving or marrying without permission. A violation may result in a return to prison. In most states, prisoners can apply for parole after one-third of their sentence is served. Parole boards are appointed by the governor and hear the petitions. Some states have passed truth-in- sentencing laws that eliminate parole as an option. States have also passed sex offender laws that require released sex offenders to notify all members of the community in which he will reside. 2. Probation Probation is like parole, but it is in lieu of incarceration. Violation of probation can result in imprisonment. Almost two-thirds of those who are convicted of crimes are put on probation. Juveniles, first offenders, and those who plea bargain are most likely to go on probation. 3. Work Release If a judge determines that a convicted criminal is not likely to be a continued danger to society, the judge may allow the individual to work regular hours at a job and then spend the rest of the time, including evenings and weekends, in jail. 10
