The board has received more scrutiny as of late due to the decreased rate of individuals receiving parole.

Alabama Board of Pardons and Paroles

This week, February 6 through 8, Alabama’s Board of Pardons and Paroles has scheduled to hear 65 parole applicants and 29 requests for pardon.

Last week on January 30 the board held 27 parole hearings and eight pardon hearings. The board granted eight paroles and denied 17 while granting eight pardons and continuing one to a later date.

On January 31, 36 hearings were held, 26 for parole and 10 for pardons. Of the 26 parole applicants six were granted and 20 were denied. For pardons eight were granted and two were denied.

The board has received more scrutiny as of late due to the decreased rate of individuals receiving parole and a lawsuit against the board alleging involvement in a forced labor scheme to keep individuals incarcerated.
