Hello there --
I am sorry to hear about this. Have you spoken with your son to see if he knows what happened or if there were any incidents since his parole approval that might have impacted the decision to grant the parole? Unfortunately, the parole board makes mistakes and because they do not really answer to anyone, they can simply correct their mistake by rescinding an earlier order, no matter who it impacts. If there was an incident and it was not just a mistake on the part of the parole board, I can tell you that once the other inmates learn that parole has been granted to one of them, there are certain inmates who try to start trouble with that inmate in order to mess up the parole date and plans as well. Even if the incident was not your son's fault and he was defending himself, the prison and parole board can simply ignore the facts and rescind or delay a release date.
Unfortunately, you will not know what the reason is until your son tells you or he gives the prison permission to tell you. But, the prison and parole board can do what they did without answering to anyone and without recourse, so there is not much you can do at this point except find out what the problem is or was and try to correct the matter so that he can make parole when his case comes up for review again.
