Person on parole arrested on trafficking and drugs charges is still currently in jail. Had parole hold and it is now almost 2 months later and the jail says his parole officer has lifted the hold and now he can bail out. Why would a parole officer do this, possible he believed defendent may be innocent? Just curious
You should not assume anything about this development.

There are s multitude of possible reasons for a parole officer to withdraw or vacate a parole hold placed upon a person. There may have been a change in the law that eliminated parole for the prior conviction, parole may have expired or any number of other procedural reasons. Usually, parole officers comply strictly with procedural safeguards put in place to avoid having somebody be subject to an unlawful parole violation or hold. But probably not because the individual parole officer subjectively believes the parolee is innocent of new charges.
