parole

If you're on parole, this means that you were:

  • serving a sentence for a crime, and
  • released from custody to serve the rest of your sentence in the community.

When you're on parole, you have to follow certain conditions that were set when you were released. This includes reporting to a parole officer. If you don't follow the conditions, you can be sent back into custody to serve the rest of your sentence.
