A: I'm not 100% clear on your meaning of "can I out run parole" but if you are considering halting communication with your parole officer and simply going AWOL, I hope you reconsider. Why sabotage yourself now with only 6 months remaining?

Do you really believe they'll say, "oh well, two and a half years is close enough" and simply let it go?

A: If a motion to revoke parole is filed, the parole end date is wiped out. A warrant for your arrest will remain outstanding until you are apprehended, and you would be subject to serving the remainder of your prison sentence, no matter when that is.
