SB 620 – Senate Passage RCS# 77

Criminal Justice Reform

Senate Bill 620 allows the Commissioner of Corrections to establish a nonviolent offense parole program for eligible inmates that would help accelerate low-risk prisoner’s access to parole, prioritizing limited space in West Virginia’s overcrowded correctional facilities for more serious offenders. SB 620 would allow inmates convicted of non-violent offenses who have successfully completed a rehabilitation treatment program to be paroled without requiring action from the Parole Board, as long as they have already served their minimum term of their sentence, and are already eligible for parole under the pre-existing, slower process.
