When appearing before the State Board of Parole and Post-Prison Supervision an inmate shall have the right to be accompanied by a person of the inmate’s choice pursuant to rule promulgated jointly by the State Board of Parole and Post-Prison Supervision and the Department of Corrections. [1981 c.644 §1; 1987 c.320 §52]

Note: 144.123 (Who may accompany person to parole hearing) was enacted into law by the Legislative Assembly but was not added to or made a part of ORS chapter 144 or any series therein by legislative action. See Preface to Oregon Revised Statutes for further explanation.

Notes of Decisions

Where peti­tioner, though not represented at parole board hearing, had right to be accompanied by per­son of his choice under this sec­tion, he was afforded sufficient due process protec­tion. Jancsek v. Oregon Bd. of Parole, 833 F2d 1389 (1987)

This sec­tion does not create right for inmate to bring any per­son of the inmate’s choice to hearing before State Board of Parole and Post-Prison Supervision but instead authorizes board and Depart­ment of Correc­tions to jointly promulgate rule re­gard­ing per­sons who may accompany inmate at hearing and inmate may choose from among per­sons named in rule.

Notes of Decisions

Under rules of State Board of Parole, board could not in determining history/risk score, consider juvenile adjudica­tions that had been expunged pursuant to [former] ORS 419.800 to 419.839, even if prisoner admits to board that they occurred.
