What information might I learn about the offender at the parole hearing?

During the hearing you might learn about the programs the offender is taking in prison and hear how he or she is doing in the institution – if the person is following the Correctional Plan or not. From the questions that the members of the National Parole Board ask the offender, you may get a sense of how the person is behaving in prison and if he or she is taking steps to improve his or her situation. From the comments of the case management team or the offender’s assistant, you may get a sense if the offender is making progress or not.
