A: In Arizona, eligibility for parole depends on the specific laws and guidelines that govern parole decisions, including the type of offense committed and the individual's behavior while incarcerated. For someone sentenced to 3 and a half years for aggravated assault and disorderly conduct, demonstrating good behavior in prison, participating in programs, and earning certificates can positively influence their parole review. However, Arizona has restrictive policies on parole, especially for certain offenses. The ability to apply for parole in late 2024 would depend on the specific details of the sentence, the nature of the charges, and any applicable statutory provisions for early release or parole eligibility.
