In the State of Florida, an inmate serving time in jail or state prison may be "paroled." Parole is the word used to describe the process of being released prior to an inmate's court-imposed imprisonment or jail sentence. If an inmate is paroled, he or she will go through a period of supervision. While on the supervised period of time, the parolee is required to successfully complete the parole time period without violating the terms or conditions of their release agreement. The release agreement is created and ordered by the Office of the Commission. The Commission's determination to parole an inmate is not considered a right, and the inmate's parole may be revoked at any time.
