A revocation is the process of returning a paroled offender back to prison when the offender has violated the conditions of parole while in the community. 

The offender can: 1) waive the Revocation Hearing; or 2) choose to have a Revocation Hearing before the Hearing Officer of the Pardon and Parole Board. Generally, the staff attorney of the Pardon and Parole Board serves as the Hearing Officer.


Offenders may choose to waive either the Probable Cause Hearing or the Revocation Hearing by completing a waiver form that is signed and witnessed. If the Revocation Hearing is waived by the offender, the Hearing Officer will review the offender’s “jacket” (or DOC. file), and all submitted evidence and make a recommendation based upon the presented evidence.


During a Revocation Hearing, the offender has the right to have witnesses who may have information relevant to the alleged violation(s). The Hearing Officer will review the information provided and may recommend:

  • Revocation or no revocation of an offender’s parole;
  • To grant or not grant street time credit; and
  • To run any new conviction(s) concurrently with the revoked sentence.

After the completion of a Revocation Hearing, the Hearing Officer will make a final determination within 30 to 45 days. Once a ruling is made, the Hearing Officer will submit the DOC's file, a summary of the Hearing (if held), and a recommendation for consideration to the Governor. 

Once the recommendation is made by the Pardon and Parole Board, the Governor has 120 days or longer, depending on various circumstances, to process the final revocation determination. After a final decision is made, the Governor files the Revocation Certificate with the Oklahoma Secretary of State and notifies the Pardon and Parole Board and the Oklahoma Department of Corrections.
