Parole time opinion filing Monday

On Monday morning, the Supreme Court will file its opinion in In re Lira, which raises the issue whether a life prisoner who is granted parole on a pre-1983 offense is entitled to credit against the applicable five-year parole period for the time he or she was incarcerated following the Governor’s improper reversal of a prior grant of parole.  Lira was argued in December.

The opinion can be viewed online Monday beginning at 10:00 a.m.
