Prisons and correctional facilities; mandatory release on parole. Provides that a prisoner whose parole is revoked on a technical violation is not required to serve the minimum six months. Under this bill, the prisoner would receive credit for good time if the parole violation was technical, but not if the violation involved a new and subsequent charge. "Technical violation" means any failure to adhere to conditions of parole that is not deliberate defiance of those conditions or does not constitute further criminal conduct or both.
