My husban is in prison for 7 years & they are sayen A new law in going infect July 1,2009 that for every year they only have to serve 8 months & 13 days. I just heard about it from the inmates in Madison Correctional Institution in London Ohio.

Ok, there is a new court decision regarding parole that just came down form the Ohio Supreme Court that affects thousands of prisoners in their parole hearings. Specifically, prior to this ruling Ohio was basing people's parole on what they were indicted for, not what they were convicted for. The court has banned them from doing this and ordered that prisoners need to be given parole based on what they were convicted for instead, which means that he could get out much sooner. he needs to file for a new hearing with the parole board as soon as possible to see if he is eligible for the new lighter parole and see if his time can be reduced.

Customer: replied 8 years ago.
7 counts of Gross sexual impostion & got 7 years. He well have 1 year as of March 20th of this year.
Expert:  Crimlawyer replied 8 years ago.
Alright, that makes him a 5 on the guidelines and he will be eligible for parole at 36 months. So he does not need to file right now, but it is quite possible that he may only do three years if he avoids fights and is otherwise a good prisoner.
