To be eligible for parole, the juvenile in the Division of Juvenile Justice must successfully finish all their program goals. In the month that the juvenile is scheduled to meet with the Juvenile Parole Board at a Parole Consideration Hearing, the youth can be recommended for parole and will have a meeting with the parole board to sit and discuss their rehab and progress. This board can also revoke a youth’s parole status if they find that the juvenile has not successfully completed their programs or if they have broken one of the conditions of their parole.
It is the role of this board to determine whether the juvenile is ready to be paroled and will most likely order certain conditions of their release. Some of these things may be to keep in regular contact with their parole officer, submit to searches and not leaving the State of California without the courts permission. Other stipulation to their release might be ordered according to the special needs of that juvenile such as an obligation to go to substance abuse treatments, testing for substance abuse and going to school.
Often juveniles who are sent to the Division of Juvenile Justice are released when their sentences is up or they must leave to serve out the rest of their sentence in an adult facility.
