In Commonwealth v. Cole, 468 Mass. 294 (2014), the SJC struck down community parole supervision for life (CPSL), also known as lifetime community parole, as an unconstitutional violation of the Article 30 separation of powers doctrine.

For any questions regarding the imposition of CPSL or incarceration as a result of a violation of a CPSL condition, please contact the CPCS Post Conviction Unit at 617-482-6212.
