Federal Court


Parole

POWERS OF PAROLE BOARD
Non-imposition of duration of condition should be interpreted as imposed throughout duration of parole

Petitioner sought revision of decision of board that imposed conditions for release on parole. Petitioner was sentenced to eight years in jail for four counts of sexual assault on victims aged six to nineteen. Petitioner claimed that residence assignment was incompatible with his history and that board failed to establish duration of condition. Application not allowed. Court affirmed that conditions imposed were compatible with gravity of crime committed, age of victims and his attitude to minimize conduct. Court ruled that non-imposition of duration of condition was allowed with jurisprudence and should be interpreted as imposed throughout duration of parole.
