::''"The parole system will also undergo a number of reforms, but two very important facts will not change: violent offenders will still be subject to the jurisdiction and discretion of the parole board and New Hampshire’s truth in sentencing law will remain intact. Nonviolent offenders will be subject to release after serving 120% of their minimum sentence, including the disciplinary period required by law."''
 +
 
 +
After he told the NH House that the bill forcing the release of child sexual predators would only apply to nonviolent criminals, it came out that the new law removed the State Adult Parole Board’s discretion. This means it mandates the release of criminals nine months before the end of their maximum sentences in order to ensure that they were under supervision during their first months outside of prison, whether they be nonviolent or violent predators.<ref>[http://newhampshire.watchdog.org/7032/nh-house-told-parole-bill-would-not-apply-to-violent-offenders/ "NH House told parole bill would not apply to violent offenders," ''New Hampshire Watchdog'', October 7, 2010]</ref>
