Commission terminates parole agreement for inmate Alford Jones

RALEIGH The Post-Release Supervision and Parole Commission has terminated the Mutual Agreement Parole Program (MAPP) for inmate Alford Jones (#0214013). Jones was scheduled to be paroled June 27, 2010, upon successful completion of the MAPP. However, the Commission determined that Jones was not complying with the MAPP conditions.

The Commission concluded that the inmate is a moderate to high risk for release. In addition, Jones willfully failed to participate in an assigned treatment program; made inappropriate comments to a prison employee; and on two occasions failed to maintain his work release job, which was a condition of the MAPP.

Jones was sentenced to life for first degree murder. He was convicted in Lenoir County on March 19, 1975, and has been parole eligible since 1986. His next review for parole consideration is scheduled for May 2013.

MAPP is designed to prepare selected inmates for release through structured activities, scheduled progression in custody levels, participation in community based programs and established parole dates. It is a three-way agreement between the Division of Prisons, the Commission and the offender.

The Post-Release Supervision and Parole Commission is an independent agency that is responsible for releasing offenders who meet eligibility requirements established in North Carolina General Statutes.
