    very well written article. However, I still question why the Board insists on retying cases when an offender is interviewed. I just had a clients hearing postponed until he can prove why he owes no restitution when the very reason is incorporated in the PSR/PSI and sentencing minutes on record?

    commissioners STATED THAT IF CLIENT COULD PROVE HE OWED NO RESTITUTION THAT THEY WOULD CONSIDER HIM IN A DIFFERENT LIGHT. What is that?

    Who made the Board trial and jury? The Board needs to be reigned in. They asked for and received the3 COMPAS, why are the scientific results disregarded on a whim?
