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.
