The granting of an Early Discharge rests primarily with the sentencing Court or the Parole Board. The Court may consider an Early Discharge for offenders that comply with their supervision conditions. The Parole Board can do this as well after the offender has completed three years of supervision in the community. Dangerous Felons are eligible after completing five years.
In the case of Earned Compliance Credits, the Early Discharge is based solely on whether an offender meets the initial eligibility requirements and how well they comply with their supervision requirements. If an offender is interested in an Early Discharge granted by the Court or Parole Board, or interested in learning more about ECC they should discuss this with their supervising officer.
