When board decision must be reviewed by at least three board members

Whenever the State Board of Parole and Post-Prison Supervision makes a decision affecting a person sentenced to life imprisonment or convicted of a crime involving the death of a victim, whether or not the prosecution directly charged the person with causing the death of the victim, the decision affecting such person must be reviewed by no fewer than three board members. [1975 c.217 §5; 2015 c.820 §41]

Notes of Decisions

This sec­tion, which requires review by "the full membership of the board" of decisions affecting peti­tioner who had been convicted of mur­der and sen­tenced to life im­pris­on­­ment, means all voting members of Board holding office and not disqualified from voting. Lareson v. State Board of Parole, 91 Or App 642, 756 P2d 674 (1988), Sup Ct review denied

"Review" does not mean that board member must participate in hearing. Catlin v. Board of Parole, 127 Or App 409, 873 P2d 368 (1994), Sup Ct review denied
