AGO 1987 NO. 19 > Jul 28 1987

After an inmate adjudicated to be a sexual psychopath pursuant to chapter 71.06 RCW has been transferred to the Department of Corrections and served the minimum duration of confinement (less good time), the Indeterminate Sentence Review Board does have the authority to request that a parole plan be prepared. After the Board has approved a parole plan, it is not necessary for the superintendent and the Board to have a release signed by the committing court pursuant to RCW 71.06.091 prior to release of the inmate on parole.

AGO 1955 NO. 68 > May 2 1955

After one year of confinement the Board may reconsider the minimum duration of confinement of an inmate who comes within the purview of RCW 9.95.040 and adjust the same downward, but the reconsidered term must not be less than that permitted under that section.
