Cornell University Press

The author discusses his release on parole from the Federal Youth Center on December 23, 1970. He first went up for parole during his fifth month of imprisonment in Ashland. His parole was quickly denied, and the next parole hearing was scheduled for October 1970. The author talks about his parole plan and his “Christmas release”—a release date just before Christmas Day—on December 3, 1970; the Federal Bureau of Investigation’s monitoring of his parole plans; his flight to Pittsburgh en route to New York City after his release; and his “Certificate of Parole,” which listed, under “Conditions of Parole,” all the things that parolees like him were not allowed to do. According to the terms of his release, the author could remain on parole until May 19, 1975, which was equivalent to an additional 1,608 days.
