WAC 381-80-050

Final discharge from parole supervision.

When a paroled offender has adequately performed the obligations of his or her release for a period of three years from the date of parole to the community, the board shall grant a final discharge restoring civil rights, pursuant to chapter 140, Laws of 1993. If the board determines that a final discharge is compatible with the best interests of society and the welfare of the paroled individual, the board may grant a final discharge prior to three years from the date of parole.
Final discharge restoring civil rights is governed by statute (RCW 9.96.050). If granted earlier than three years from the date of parole, full board ratification is required on all cases where the individual was convicted of a crime which resulted in a loss of life.
The right to possess or control firearms is not restored.
In cases where the maximum term has expired, the board may grant a final discharge restoring civil rights if it believes such action is in the best interests of society.
