Parolees are required to follow all state and federal law. The parolee must stay in the state of their incarceration and must check in routinely with their parole officer. The parolee must maintain steady employment, notify any address change, report regularly to their parole officer. The parolee must also avoid possessing, using and administering controlled substances. The parolee also must avoid having a firearm in their possession. They are required to submit to a warrantless search and seizure at random without probable cause. There are terms and conditions that a parolee must comply. Failure to comply with these terms and conditions have serious consequences. The parole officer and parole board determine the type of violation. The parolee has a right to “due process” and hear the violation of his parole. The parole violation hearing will decide from the parolee’s statements and the violation charges whether the parolee will return to prison.
