Most victims believe the offender will serve his entire sentence, which is not true. In Missouri, there are two parts of a sentence, incarceration and parole supervision. Offenders who are not serving life sentences will have a conditional release date that is determined by law. The Department of Corrections must release the offender on the conditional release date. However, if the offender is a sex offender and does not complete the Missouri Sex Offender Program, the offender’s conditional release date could change.
