Q If someone has a projected release date is that when they will definitely be released?
Not necessarily. Although many people see that a person has a projected release date and jump to the conclusion that this is the date that a loved one will be released from prison if they are not granted parole in reality this date reflects another date when a person may or may not be released from prison on supervision. The only exception to this rule is for offenders whose crime was committed before September of 1996 must be released on that date. The majority of offenders must be approved for mandatory supervision by the parole board in order to be released.
