Georgia Parole Eligibility
One of the most common questions that we are asked is when a particular inmate will be eligible for parole. In Georgia, the Board of Pardons and Paroles provides a substantial amount of information about when a Georgia inmate is eligible for parole consideration.
GEORGIA PAROLE ELIGIBILITY IS PRIMARY DRIVEN BY THE CRIME SEVERITY LEVEL
Eligibility for parole in Georgia is primarily a product of the crime severity level. The Georgia Board of Pardons and Paroles categorizes various offenses into crime severity levels. There are 3 different charts of crime severity levels: pre-2006 crime severity levels, post-2006 crime severity levels, and crime severity levels after 2013 revisions.
For offenses committed prior to 2006, there are 7 crime severity levels. However, for offenses committed after 2006 there 8 applicable crime severity levels affect parole eligibility in Georgia. The primary difference between the pre- and post-2006 crime severity is level 8. Georgia parole eligibility grids apply to the date the offense was committed.
