  • The legal and procedural process by which probation or parole may be withdrawn. Both probation and parole are conditional release from incarceration. If individuals violate the terms of their release, their freedom may be revoked. Probation and parole officers have considerable discretion when it comes to revocation. In 1972, the Supreme Court ruled in Morrissey v. Brewer that parole revocation requires due process. Parolees are entitled to an administrative hearing when faced with revocation. For more information, see Morrissey v. Brewer (1972).
