False Information in Parole File May Violate Due Process

The use of false information in a parole file can be a due process
violation, but such a claim cannot be conclusory and must specify the false
information. A reduction in the frequency of parole consideration for
persons with life sentences to every eight years did not violate the
plaintiff's rights under the Ex Post Facto Clause absent a showing that he
would be eligible for parole within eight years. See: Jones v. Ray, 279
F.3d 944 (11th Cir. 2001).
