Virginia Beach Sheriff Ken Stolle appointed to Virginia Parole Commission

Virginia Beach Sheriff Ken Stolle is honored to announce he has accepted an appointment by Gov. Terry McAuliffe to serve on the newly formed Virginia Commission on Parole Review.

Stolle was the original patron of the legislation to abolish parole when he served in the Virginia Senate. The General Assembly passed it, and it went into effect in 1995.

Stolle will serve alongside 26 other members of the commission, tasked with reviewing Virginia’s approach to parole and making recommendations for possible changes. He said he is honored by the governor’s appointment and looks forward to participating in this important discussion.

The commission’s first meeting is scheduled for July 20 at the state Capitol in Richmond. Its final report is due to the governor in Dec. 4.
