Eliminate Ohio's Parole BoardThe signee(s) of this petition, "Eliminate Ohio's Parole Board", request the immediate removal of the Ohio Parole Board from the current release consideration process for parole eligible offenders. We request that emergency release hearings be conducted for all "Old Law" offenders and parole eligible "New Law" offenders with release consideration based upon objective information utilizing the already established O.R.A.S. (Ohio Risk Assessment System).The signee(s) of this petition also urges OUR legislators to strengthen Ohio's current parole/release considerations laws by:* Eliminating the Ohio Parole Board from the release consideration process for parole eligible offenders;* Adopting an objective evidence-based risk assessment system (ORAS) whih leads to mandatory release guidelines;* Determining mandatory release guidelines which reflect the sentencing range given by the judge;* Recognizing & supporting rehabilitative efforts made during incarceration.Such reforms will further the interest of justice by providing equity and fairness while reducing recidivism. Furthermore, these changes will support fiscal responsibility by releasing low-risk rehabilitated offenders and reducing costs to Ohio's taxpayers.
