Thank you Fran
He's not lost - I know exactly where he is (in prison) and I check the inmate locator regularly. That's why I'm reaching out for your assistance. I talk to him almost weekly. Perhaps I should word this differently... How do I find out the outcome of his parole hearing if the parole board does not provide hearing transcripts or any information to family or friends? What I am saying is that I don't know if he is telling the truth about his parole hearing outcome. How do I find out without revealing my identity - this can actually cause additional problems.
Also, did you actual try looking your boyfriend up in the inmate locator on the DOC website?
I know you know where he is. But if you search his name through the locator, it will provide you with information like, (1) when he's eligible for parole, (2) his estimated parole hearing date, and (3) his estimated release date.
If he's already been paroled, then the information on the locator might indicate if/when he's scheduled to be released.
