Subchapter 003 : Eligibility for Parole

(Cite as: 28 V.S.A. § 504)
  • § 504. Witnesses; production of records

    (a) The Board may issue subpoenas requiring the attendance of any witnesses and the production of any records, books, papers, and documents as it may consider necessary for investigation of the case of any person before it. Subpoenas may be signed and oaths administered by any member of the Board. Subpoenas so issued may be served by a parole or probation officer, or a law enforcement officer, in the same manner as similar process in the Criminal Division of the Superior Court. Any Criminal Division of the Superior Court of the State, upon application of the Board, may in its discretion compel the attendance of witnesses and the production of evidence before the Board in the same manner as it may compel them to attend or be produced before the court.

    (b) Any person who testifies falsely or fails to appear when subpoenaed, or fails or refuses to produce material under the subpoena, shall be subject to the same orders and penalties to which a person before a court is subject. (Added 1971, No. 199 (Adj. Sess.), § 20; amended 2009, No. 154 (Adj. Sess.), § 238.)
