This presentation will provide parole attorneys with information to inform their representation of lifers coming up for parole. The focus is on lifers who are gang-validated and have been housed in the SHU (security housing units) because of it. Although CDCR has transferred over 2500 prisoners from the SHU to general population, when these prisoners come before the parole commissioners, they are currently not being paroled. The speakers provide important background information and relevant caselaw, as well as pitfalls to avoid, and pointers to help practitioners get their client a date. The speakers include two highly experienced parole attorneys, an attorney who litigated the class action case Ashker v. Governor, and a former SHU prisoner who has successfully reentered the community.
