How to use parole in a sentence?

  1. Robert Kennedy:

    Our father’s death impacted our family in ways that can never adequately be articulated, and today’s decision by a two-member parole board has inflicted enormous pain.

  2. Peter Dumas:

    Parole is supposed to be that carrot. If you’re good while you’re incarcerated you’re supposed to get parole, she doesn’t know what more she can do really.

  3. district attorney:

    If he thinks that shoplifting is down, and all of his rhetoric about Prop 47 and the success of it is simply just a lie, they’ve caused such a disrespect for the law by weakening our system, by weakening our laws. Newsom has tried to destroy law enforcement, so for him to sit here and say that he wants a more local effort put forth is so offensive to me, because he is the person who is letting these dangerous criminals out of prison on parole left and right.

  4. The Attorney General Office:

    At this point, we don't have information that indicates that the California Law Enforcement Telecommunications System (CLETS) isn't working as intended on our end when it comes to the ability to access information regarding individuals entered into the system. Generally speaking, law enforcement are able to access information about an individual's probation or parole status by directly querying the supervised release file via CLETS upon the arrest or detention of an individual who is suspected of having committed a crime. That information should be available immediately upon being queried.
