When a prisoner is granted parole, it usually does not mean they re-enter society unencumbered and completely free to resume their old life. In fact, one of the objectives of the Nevada correctional system is to ensure a prisoner does not immediately revert to their old ways and is afforded the opportunity to embark on a new, more fulfilling journey.
According to NRS 213.1215, a prisoner may be released on parole if:
When someone is sentenced to serve a term in prison in Nevada, they may have the opportunity to get out early “on parole.” When a person is released on parole, they are required to adhere to a specific set of daily, weekly and monthly requirements. Examples of typical parole conditions include:
A standard parole period lasts between one and three years, but the length of time can vary depending on the type and severity of the criminal offense. As long as the individual follows all the terms of parole, the person can remain out of police custody. However, if the person violates any terms of parole, the Nevada Parole Board can sentence them back to prison.
One strategy used by the Nevada Parole Board to try and ensure a prisoner released on parole does not immediately go back to their old life is to require a prisoner recently granted parole to agree to intense and strict supervision. This standard is set forth in NRS 213.124. Here is the specific statutory language:
(a) Oral or wire communications or any auditory sound; or
