5120:1-1-20 Review procedure for early release consideration.

(A) A prisoner who was denied release at a regular parole release hearing that occurred before April 1, 1998 and scheduled for his next parole hearing between twenty months and twenty years after the date of that hearing will be scheduled for a release hearing after half the length of the continuance. For the purpose of this rule, a regular parole release hearing is a hearing conducted for the purpose of determining whether or not to release the prisoner on parole after he has served the time required by section 2967.13 of the Revised Code. A parole revocation hearing or a hearing by the parole board to consider a prisoner for shock parole, furlough or any other type of release is not a regular parole release hearing for the purpose of this rule and shall not establish a right to have the prisoner's case heard early pursuant to this rule. A prisoner granted a projected release date or denied release at a parole hearing on or after April 1, 1998 shall not be reviewed pursuant to this rule.

(B) A prisoner who was denied release at a regular parole release hearing that occurred before April 1, 1998 and scheduled for his next parole hearing twenty years or more after the date of that hearing will be scheduled for a release hearing ten years from the date of that hearing.
