Kyla Lee on Global News at 6 speaking about Day Parole

Kyla Lee spoke with GlobalBC reporter Kristen Robinson about the issue of day parole, which can be sought earlier than regular parole ineligibility periods. The family of a murdered Vancouver Island teenager is outraged that her killers are now able to apply for early release, only seven years into their sentence. Day parole is an important aspect of the justice system and rehabilitation, but there is really no restriction on who can apply for it upon becoming eligible to request it. This can mean that families of victims of crime, and the victims themselves in some cases, can be retraumatized by these requests and by having to relive the nightmares they went through.
