Eliminating Lifetime Parole for Children

Lengthy post-release supervision, including lifetime parole, can make life and full social reintegration difficult on formerly incarcerated children who have demonstrated their maturity, rehabilitation, and fitness to re-enter society.

We advocate for states to enact policies that limit post-release supervision or give the supervising authority (parole board or judge) the ability to discharge a formerly incarcerated child from supervision at a reasonable point after release.
