TOPEKA -- A Topekan has been tapped to continue on for another term as a member of the Kansas Parole Board.
Governor reappointed Patricia Ann Biggs, Topeka, to the Kansas Parole Board. The board plays a significant role in the two sentencing systems that presently govern those confined by the Kansas Department of Corrections. Under the indeterminate release structure, the Parole Board determines when an incarcerated inmate will be released.
The Board establishes supervision conditions of parole and conditional release, discharges successful parole and conditional releases from supervision per the recommendation of the Parole Officer and revokes the release of those who have violated the conditions of their supervision.
