The West Virginia Parole Board may revoke the parole of any parolee that has previously been granted parole and has not been discharged from supervision. A parolee shall not be revoked unless a panel of three Parole Board Members finds that a parolee has violated a condition of parole which has been imposed by law or by the Parole Board.
A Court Order finding a parolee guilty of any new felony charge while he/she is on parole, shall support a revocation based on a conviction. However, a status hearing will be held, if the parolee does not waive his revocation hearing.
If a parolee does not waive his right to a revocation hearing, a panel of the Parole Board must make a finding that the parolee has violated a condition of his parole after holding an evidentiary hearing.
The Parolee is entitled to a preliminary hearing which is held by a hearing examiner from the Division of Corrections. The parolee is also entitled to be represented by an attorney and if he/she cannot afford an attorney one will be appointed to him/her at no cost to her/him.
The Parole Revocation Hearing are all held by video teleconferencing from the Parole Board Office in Charleston, West Virginia with the Regional Jail in which the parolee is being held.
All visitors and witness have to report to testify to the Parole Board Office in Charleston, West Virginia.
All visitors and witness should contact the West Virginia Parole Board Office at 304-558-6366 and speak with Travis Hayes, the office assistant in charge of scheduling all of the revocations hearings.
