Parole date despite recent DORs

Last week we represented a client coming before the Idaho Commission of Pardons and Parole for the first time.  He had many DORs (disciplinary write-ups) when he first entered IDOC, but our major concern was two recent DOR’s just months before his hearing.  Based on our experience, we had a good idea of what questions and concerns the commissioners would have.  So we worked extensively with our client on how to respond.  The Commission elected to give him a date upon completion of his classes, which he’ll finish about the same time he finishes he fixed time.  We are happy when our clients regain their freedom!
