I am a victim of a crime and the offender who was just sentenced is now eligible for parole. How can that be?

The Parole Board does not determine when an inmate will become eligible for parole. The timekeeper's division within the Nevada Department of Corrections (NDOC) determines parole eligibility based on the laws in effect when the offense occurred, and the sentence imposed by the Court. Eligibility dates may also be effected by county jail credits, statutory good time, meritorious credits and work credits.


Any questions regarding an inmate's time, classification or inmate status in prison should be directed to the central administrative office of the NDOC. The number of the main desk is (775) 887-3285.
