House of Representatives
Session of 2015 - 2016 Regular Session


Posted: April 22, 2015 11:28 AM
From: Representative Bryan Barbin
To: All House members
Subject: Amending Title 61 (Prisons & Parole) further providing for Parole Power
I intend to reintroduce legislation amending Title 61 (Prisons and Parole) of the Pennsylvania Consolidated Statutes to require that pre-release inmates be transferred to a facility in the county wherein the crime which led to the incarceration occurred for the last 50% of their sentence.

Requiring pre-release inmates to serve the last 50% of their sentence in the county of original jurisdiction and mandating additional restrictions will ensure that inmates are not placed or concentrated in one specific area of the Commonwealth.

The legislative language is attached.
