The State of Denial last year enacted a Post-Release Supervision Law that requires the supervision of convicts who serve their maximum terms for a period of up to five years when imposed by a judge at the time of the original sentence. (This is a form of parole for those who do not get out of prison early but who serve their full terms). The pressure for this legislation came from concern over the release of sex offenders, and, for them, it is mandatory. In other cases, it is within the discretion of the judge.
The problem is that, in many cases, judges are not imposing post-release supervision, even when it is mandatory. (It’s difficult to learn new procedures). To remedy this, the state Superintendent of Corrections has asked the Parole Board to impose it upon all sex offenders who are released after serving their maximum sentences.
Prisoners Legal Services has brought a class-action suit, challenging this practice, on behalf of all those individuals whom the Parole Board has given post-release supervision. It is arguing that they should be released without supervision if the judge failed to impose it at sentencing.
