VIOLATIONS FOR OFFENDERS UNDER THE JURISDICTION OF THE BOARD OF
PAROLE AND POST-PRISON SUPERVISION OR LOCAL SUPERVISORY AUTHORITY

255-075-0001

Definitions

(1) Administrative Sanction means local, structured, or intermediate sanctions as those terms are used in OAR 291-058-0010 et al, and may include periods of local confinement in jails, restitution centers, treatment facilities, or similar facilities.

(2) Sanction Authority means:

(a) The Board or its designee for:

(A) Any felony offender who received a sentence of more than twelve (12) months in the custody of the Department of Corrections; or

(B) Any felony offender who received a sentence of twelve (12) months or less but who also has an additional sentence(s) of greater than twelve (12) months.

(i) If an offender is on post-prison supervision for multiple sentences which include a sentence that exceeds twelve (12) months ("Board case") and a less than twelve (12)-month sentence ("Local Supervisory Authority case"), the Board will maintain jurisdiction of the post-prison supervision of the Local Supervisory Authority case until the Board's active involvement in the Board case(s) expires. Following expiration of the Board's case(s), the Board will maintain jurisdiction over the post-prison supervision of the Local Supervisory Authority case(s) until an offender is re-released following revocation of the post-prison supervision for the Local Supervisory Authority case(s), or until the Local Supervisory Authority petitions to assume jurisdiction, whichever comes first. Jurisdiction will fall under the Local Supervisory Authority at that point.

(ii) If the Board issued the order of post-prison supervision for an offender whose only sentence was twelve (12) months or less, jurisdiction will remain with the Board until petition by the Supervisory Authority to assume jurisdiction or upon re-release following revocation of the post-prison supervision for that sentence; whichever comes first.

(b) The Local Supervisory Authority or its designee for any felony offender whose crime was committed after November 1, 1989, was sentenced by the court to twelve (12) months or less, and who does not have an additional sentence of more than twelve (12) months for a felony.

Suspension of Parole or Post-Prison Supervision; Citation to Appear

(1) When the supervising officer or other person informs the Sanction Authority of reasonable grounds to believe that a person has violated the conditions of parole or post-prison supervision, or that supervision is no longer in the best interests of the offender or the community, and that the revocation of parole or post-prison supervision may be justified or, in the case of parole only, an extension of parole may be justified, the Sanction Authority may:

(a) Suspend the running of the sentence and the parole or post-prison supervision term and order the offender arrested and detained pending a violation hearing; or

(b) Issue a citation to appear at a violation hearing without first suspending parole or the post-prison supervision term or ordering detention.

(2) The Sanction Authority may issue a suspend and detain warrant or a citation to appear at a violation hearing.

(3) The Sanction Authority may authorize, in writing, that its designated representative may issue citations to appear at a violation hearing.

(2) The likelihood of the offender absconding or failing to appear at the hearing;

(3) The availability of resources in the community such as residence or employment;

(4) Any recommendation by the parole and post-prison supervision officer.

(5) The Sanction Authority may release offenders detained under a Sanction Authority warrant, after the violation hearing, when recommending local sanctions or intervention and continuance of parole or post-prison supervision.

Guidelines for "Best Interest" Return

When the Sanction Authority determines that an offender's release on parole or post-prison supervision is not in the best interest of the offender or in the best interest of society, the Sanction Authority may return the offender to custody. This type of return to custody may apply when:

(1) The offender is suffering from an emotional or psychological disturbance which makes the offender dangerous to self or others if left in the community. The following behavior may indicate a dangerous emotional or psychological disturbance:

(a) Showing a present capacity to carry out any statements or threats of violence against the offender or the community; or

(b) Circumstances and conduct similar to that which led to the initial incarceration; or

(2) The offender's behavior cannot be adequately controlled if left in the community.

(3) Best interest returns for offenders on post-prison supervision shall not exceed 90 days, and must be approved by the Sanction Authority.

Hearing Requirement: Procedure

(1) Except as otherwise provided by these rules, before the Board can revoke parole or extend active parole supervision for offenders whose crimes occurred on or after December 4, 1986, and before November 1, 1989 (BM10), the Board or Hearings Officer shall conduct a hearing.

(2) When the offender waives the hearing and/or consents to the order, the Board need not conduct a hearing when the Board extends supervision for offenders whose crimes occurred on or after December 4, 1986 and before November 1, 1989 (BM10).

(3) Except in the cases set forth in OAR 255-075-0015 and section (6) of this rule, the Sanction Authority shall impose administrative sanctions or shall initiate a hearing within fifteen (15) days of arrest or detention for the violation of parole or post-prison supervision conditions.

(4) If an in-custody violation hearing and a final order cannot be accomplished within fifteen (15) days. a supervising officer or Hearings Officer shall request a non-bailable suspend and detain warrant from the Sanction Authority

(5) A Hearings Officer can impose up to sixty (60) days of local confinement after conducting a violation hearing or if an offender waives the hearing. In doing so, the Hearings Officer may issue a final order subject to the approval of the Sanction Authority, but immediately effective. If the Hearings Officer recommends a sanction that exceeds sixty (60) days, it must be approved by the Supervisory Authority before being considered by the Sanction Authority.

(6) If an offender consents to a sanction, intervention, or the recommendation of a revocation, a violation hearing is not required. A revocation involving a return to prison will require a future disposition hearing. If the offender contests any of the allegations, the offender may request a hearing.

Representation/Ability to Pay Attorney Fees

(1) In all cases, the offender is entitled to representation by an attorney at the offender's own expense.

(3) When the Sanction Authority or Hearings Officer defers completion of a violation hearing until a trial is over and until the court or the parole and post-prison supervision officer notifies the Sanction Authority or Hearings Officer of the final disposition of the case, the Sanction Authority or Hearings Officer shall use a finding of probable cause to support the decision to suspend and detain an offender charged with the commission of a new crime.

(4) Notwithstanding subsection (3) of this section, the Sanction Authority or Hearings Officer shall not extend a deferral following a finding of probable cause for a period greater than 120 days from the date of the preliminary hearing or waiver, unless the offender is released from jail pending final disposition of the case, or waives in writing further delay.

After a hearing, the board can order a sanction of up to 24 months incarceration. The board must hold a subsequent hearing before it can order continued incarceration exceeding 24 months. The length of sanction imposed under this rule is determined by the board.

(6) Subject to the requirements of this rule, an offender may be required to serve a sanction under this rule up to the post-prison supervision expiration date for any offense for which an offender was on post-prison supervision at the time the board ordered a sanction under this rule. When an offender is released from a sanction imposed under this rule, the offender must serve the balance, if any, of any post-prison supervision remaining up to the post-prison supervision expiration date. If the offender is not released prior to the post-prison supervision expiration date, the post-prison supervision will expire. The periods of post-prison supervision for all offenses for which an offender was on post-prison supervision at the time the board ordered a sanction under this rule continue to run while an offender is serving a sanction under this rule.

(7) Board hearings under this rule will be conducted in the same manner that the board conducts future disposition hearings. The board may order a psychological evaluation for a hearing under this rule. The procedures for records, disclosure and notice outlined in divisions 15 and 30 shall govern these hearings. A panel may conduct the hearing and the board shall make decisions pursuant to OAR 255-030-0015.

(8) In determining whether a sanction exceeding 12 months is appropriate or whether continued incarceration exceeding 24 months is appropriate, the board must consider the recommendation by the community corrections agency or hearing officer and may also consider the following:

(a) The nature of the underlying conviction(s);

(b) The offender's criminal history;

(c) The history and nature of violations of post-prison supervision or parole;

(d) Findings made by a psychologist in a psychological evaluation;

(e) Conduct in institutions or jails;

(f) Programs completed in custody and/or in the community;

(g) Treatment available in the community;

(h) Release plans;

(i) Victim's statements, if any; and

(j) Any indications of reformation and rehabilitation.

Parolees/Offenders Convicted of New Crime in This or Another Jurisdiction

(1) If an offender has violated parole or post-prison supervision as a result of a conviction of a new crime and the court has ordered a prison term to the Department of Corrections, parole or post-prison supervision terminates without a violation hearing by operation of ORS 144.345(2).

(2) Upon release from custody, if the Oregon sentence has not expired, Oregon supervision shall resume either in another jurisdiction under Interstate Compact or in Oregon. If, in preparing the re-release plan, the Department of Corrections cannot arrange supervision under Interstate Compact, the offender shall report for supervision.

(3) The Sanction Authority shall make extradition decisions on a case-by-case basis in cooperation with the holding jurisdiction.

(4) If the offender absconded supervision, the Sanction Authority shall count the inoperative time from the date the Sanction Authority issued its arrest and detention warrant to the arrest date in Oregon or if arrested out of state, upon return to Oregon custody. The Board shall forward the dates to the Department of Corrections for use in recalculating the sentence good time and expiration dates for those offenders under the Board's jurisdiction. For those not under the Board's authority, the inoperative time shall be calculated by the Supervisory Authority's designee.

Commencement Date for Prison Term Following a Violation

(1) The commencement date for a new commitment which is concurrent to an incarceration sanction for a violation of parole or post-prison supervision shall be the sentencing date for the new crime.

(2) The commencement date for a new commitment which is consecutive to an incarceration sanction for a violation of parole or post-prison supervision shall be either the release date established for the violation or the sentencing date for the new crime, whichever is later.

(3) Notwithstanding subsection (2) of this rule, when the new commitment is consecutive to a sanction for a violation, the Sanction Authority may treat the violation and the new commitment as if they were concurrent. If treated as concurrent, the commencement date for the new commitment shall be the sentencing date for the new crime plus adjustment for credit for time served.

(4) If the offender is returned with a parole or post-prison supervision violation and a new sentence which is consecutive to the sentence for which the offender was on parole, the commencement date for the new conviction shall be the date parole was revoked, if so stated on the court order.
