I would like to know if there is any hope of him getting parole, moving to category d prison/day release/home leave before the 3 years before the end of his tariff as he has been lead to believe, by his solicitor, it will happen in the next 12 months. His tariff was for 15 years which will be up in October 2021. I don't see how he can get parole before October 2018 I don't want him building his hopes up just to be let down. He has completed every course available to him in Prison and has been told by his personal officer there is nothing mor he can do but sit and ride out his remaining time. He is 35 years old.
Am I right in thinking he would be considered for home leave only once parole has been granted?
