Asked about 2 years ago - Brevard, NC

im doing some research and need to know why in 1995 the ncdoc released many prisoners due to overcrowding, some were released from probation even after there probation was revoked, but they were never incarcerated and the doc records show their cases were closed as probation cases, how did the doc/community corrections have the descretion, power to close those cases as probation cases although the cases were revoked, however, they remained under probation conditions then the cases were closed? con't figure it out. did the fact that nc switched over from the FSA to the structured sentencing Act have a roll in this decision.
