Courts Open Day: Parole, you decide
The Adult Parole Board will take part in Law Week 2018 with the aim of educating the community about parole and the Board.
At the County Court of Victoria on Saturday 19 May, the Board will take the audience on a journey through the parole process with its event Parole, you decide. The mock hearing will follow the story of a prisoner from when he is sentenced to when he applies for parole. The audience will learn about parole, including how the Board makes its decisions.
Parole, you decide will be presented by His Honour Peter Couzens, Chairperson of the Board. The panel will include three Board members - Her Honour Judge Sue Pullen, judicial member and County Court Judge, Kieran Walshe, community member and former Deputy Commissioner of Victoria Police, and Stephen Farrow, full-time member and former CEO of the Sentencing Advisory Council.
The audience will also get the opportunity to say if they believe the Board should grant parole to the prisoner.
We encourage you to take public transport to this Law Week event. Plan your trip using the Public Transport Victoria Journey Planner.
