10 GENERAL LAWS.
SEC. 6. Who May Be Paroled: Every person sentenced to
an indeterminate sentence and now confined in the penitentiary,
or hereafter sentenced thereto on an indeterminate sentence,
who has never before been imprisond in a State Penitentiary in
this or any other state or nation, when he shall have served a
period of time equal to the minimum sentence imposed upon him
for the crime, or crimes, of which he was convicted, shall be
deemed eligible for parole under the provision of this Act. In
addition, every person now confined in the penitentiary on a
definite sentence, or who shall hereafter be sentenced thereto
for a definite term and who has never before been imprisoned in
a State Penitentiary in this or any other state or nation, shall
be deemed eligible for a parole when he shall have served onethird
of the term, or terms, for which he was sentenced. But
in neither of the foregoing cases shall such person be recommended
for release on parole under the terms of this Act until
he shall have served such minimum period of time.
SEC. 2. The fact that said Section 6 of Chapter 45 as now
incorporated in the Laws of this State does not adequately provide
for the benefit of paroles and pardons to prisoners confined
in the penitentiary, creates an emergency and an imperative
public necessity that the Constitutional Rule requiring bills
to be read on three several days in each House be and the same
is hereby suspended, and that this Act shall take effect and be
in force from and after its passage, and it is so enacted.
