Parole Process in Georgia

Authored By: Board of Pardons and Paroles

Except for those offenders sentenced to death, to life without parole, or convicted under “two-strikes” legislation (see below), Georgia inmates are entitled by law to a consideration for parole. Eligible inmates are automatically considered for parole, regardless of appeals or other legal action by the inmate or his or her representative. The earliest point during their confinement when they may be granted clemency is their parole eligibility date.
