if the charges have been dropped, then you need a letter from the Houghton County prosecutor stating that fact. the letter can then be sent to the parole board show that there is no hold - and request a "reconsideration" or a new hearing to discuss a possible reconsideration. because parole is a privilege and not a right, there is no appeal process on the parole board's decisions. however, if he does not get a reconsideration then he could talk to the public defender about filing an action of mandamus in the courts. if this is granted then the court would order the parole board to the reconsideration hearing.
