This scheme covers the informal proceedings involved in determining whether a parolee's misconduct violates the terms of his/her supervision and justifies a revocation of parole. Parolees may first undergo a preliminary interview, a sort of pre-hearing, to determine whether there is probably cause to believe a violation of parole occurred. The preliminary interview may be bypassed if the parolee has been convicted of a separate crime as a conviction would constitute probable cause. The hearing level described in this adjudication scheme occurs if the Regional Commissioner determines, after reviewing a summary of the preliminary interview, that a revocation hearing is necessary. 28 CFR 2.48.
Administrative appeals are made to the National Appeals Board ("NAB"), a three-member panel of National Commissioners.
The decisions of the NAB are final, and judicial review is not available.
