Prosecutors assigned to the Lifer Parole Unit represent the District Attorney before the Board of Parole Hearings when it considers the suitability for parole of individuals that have been sentenced to life terms in the Department of Corrections for crimes committed in San Bernardino County.
These hearings are held at various state prisons located throughout the State or by video or telephone conference.
If attendance in person or video conference is not possible, the District Attorney submits our comments to the Board of Parole Hearings by letter.
