It is important for any person who has served time in jail and is now out on parole to do all they can to avoid getting involved in any illegal or nefarious activities. Why? Because if they fail to adhere to the strict provisions of their parole, they could wind up back in jail and triggering the activation of their suspended sentence.
The ramifications of violating parole when the parolee had a suspended sentence is set forth in NRS 211A.127. This statutory provision specifically states:
(a) Modify the conditions of the suspension of the sentence.
(b) Modify and extend the suspension of the sentence, in whole or in part, for a period of not more than 1 year after the date on which the court finds that the probationer has committed the violation, unless a longer period is authorized by specific statute.

Meanwhile, a board sets out an inquiry to determine whether there is probable cause to believe that the parolee has committed any act of violation as per the report by the peace officer.
The inquiry engages an inquiring officer who carries out all-inclusive research, which would constitute enough grounds that the Parolee was in violation. Once this is done, the Parolee is informed through a notice of the intended inquiry and is invited to defend him or herself.
