Kentucky Parole Board rescinds controversial policy

Kentucky

FRANKFORT, Ky. (FOX 56) – The Kentucky Parole Board is rescinding a controversial policy.

The board chair sent out a letter (read below) about the change Wednesday.

The policy would have granted another parole hearing to more than 40 inmates ordered to serve out the rest of their life sentences. Some of those inmates include convicted murderers.

Kentucky’s attorney general filed a lawsuit to block the policy. That lawsuit is now moot.
