Judicial Review

An offender, who has been convicted of murder and has been sentenced to imprisonment for life without eligibility for parole for more than fifteen years, may apply for a reduction in the number of years of imprisonment through a judicial review. Offenders have to serve at least fifteen years of their sentence to be eligible. If the jury hearing the application reduces the period of parole ineligibility, the offender may then make an application for parole under the Corrections and Conditional Release Act at the end of that reduced period.
