I am currently on parole in Colorado... In 2005 I was sentenced to 4 years in the CDOC, Colorado has manditory parole which the length of your parole is determined by the class felony you are convicted of... I was convicted of a class 3 which is a 5 year tail that started a year ago when I got out... A lot of people have told me that your not suppose to have more parole time than DOC time... Have asked parole and cant get a straight answer from them, Can you help me?????
Looking on the internet but dont really know where to start
Often, the supervision period must be within the "range" of the class of felony. A Class 3 in Colorado can go up to as many as 12 years. It does not seem there is anything wrong with the extended parole period based on my reading of the law. I hope this helps. Be sure to click ACCEPT so that I can get credit for this answer. As always, if you have additional questions after clicking ACCEPT, I will be happy to follow up with you.Thanks!Nathan Moore
Is there a motion that I can file tosee about getting it corrected??
You can certainly address the parole board. That would be your best bet.
Up to 12 years in prison... II know this. A class 3 has a manditory 5 years parole, thats what I want to know about is it lawfull to sentence me to more parole than DOC time?????
Yes, it is.
