    (b) Upon receipt of the notification, or upon an arrest by warrant in accordance with the provisions of section 551 of this title, the Board shall cause the inmate together with a parole officer to be brought before it promptly for a hearing regarding the alleged violation. Parole officers may be represented by legal counsel, which shall be provided by the appropriate State’s Attorney or the Attorney General upon request, at hearings of the Parole Board.

    (1) The hearing shall be conducted in accordance with such rules and regulations as the Board may adopt.

    (c) In the event of the withdrawal of any warrant by the authority of the Board, or in the event that the Board at the hearing on the alleged violation finds that the parolee did not violate any condition of his or her parole, or the law, the parolee shall be credited with any time lost by the interruption of the running of his or her sentence.
