State enacts new policy preventing wanted parolees from earning credit for time served


PAROLEES WHO VIOLATE THE TERMS OF THEIR COMMUNITY RELEASE WILL NOW IMMEDIATELY STOP EARNING CREDIT FOR TIME SERVED AS SOON AS A WARRANT IS FILED FOR THEIR ARREST THAT'S ACCORDING TO A NEW STATE POLICY THAT WENT INTO EFFECT ON THE FIRST OF THIS MONTH

JUST WEEKS AFTER COMMUNITY WATCHDOG NATE MORABITO'S INVESTIGATION EXPOSED THE STATEWIDE PROBLEM THE TENNESSEE DEPARTMENT OF CORRECTION PROVIDED US WITH A COPY OF ITS NEW POLICY STATE DOCUMENTS SHOW A PAROLEE WILL STOP EARNING CREDIT FOR HIS OR HER SENTENCE FROM THE TIME AN ARREST WARRANT IS ISSUED UNTIL HE OR SHE IS BACK IN JAIL OR PRISON OR UNTIL THE BOARD OF PAROLE DECIDES OTHERWISE

T-D-O-C PREVIOUSLY SAID IT'S SPENT THE LAST SEVERAL MONTHS WORKING TO REVISE ITS POLICIES RELATED TO THISWHICH BOTH SEN JON LUNDBERG AND SULLIVAN COUNTY DISTRICT ATTORNEY BARRY STAUBUS WELCOMED

(STAUBUS 03:25:16) "I THINK THAT'S THE RIGHT DECISION, I'M JUST SORRY THAT IT'S TAKEN THIS LONG AND HAS GONE ON THIS LONG IT SHOULDN'T HAVE" (LUNDBERG 00:21:02) "IT'S THE RIGHT THING TO DO I THINK THAT'S WHAT THE PUBLIC EXPECTS AND THAT'S IT" AS WE REPORTED IN FEBRUARY, HUNDREDS OF PAROLEES HAVE ACTIVE WARRANTS OUT FOR THEIR ARREST AND AS A GENERAL RULE, PREVIOUSLY COULD EARN CREDIT TOWARD THEIR SENTENCE EVEN WHILE ON THE RUN

THE BOARD OF PAROLE HAS THE OPTION OF TAKING STREET TIME FROM PAROLEES TOO, BUT AS WE PREVIOUSLY REPORTED, RARELY DOES OUR INVESTIGATION FOUND OF THE MORE THAN 35- HUNDRED CASES WHERE THE BOARD REVOKED PAROLE IN 2016 AND 2017, MEMBERS TOOK AWAY STREET TIME JUST 111 TIMES THIS POLICY CHANGE WILL RESULT IN MORE PAROLEES LOSING CREDIT WHILE WARRANTS ARE OUT FOR THEIR ARRESTS
