The power of the NYS Parole Board to revoke an inmate's release is again under review with the case of Aurelina Leonor, challenging the board of parole's decision to rescind her release after criticism from reports in the New York Post.
Leonor's rescission appeal has parallels with the current appeal and challenge brought by Pablo Costello in a separate case. The parole board rescinded Costello's release decision after complaints that the victim's survivors had not been offered an opportunity to state their views.
In each case, it is argued that there is no materially significant new information to justify the rescission of the release decision.
