Penal Code
Section 3455


If the supervising county agency has determined, following application of its assessment processes, that intermediate sanctions as authorized in subdivision (b) of Section 3454 are not appropriate, the supervising county agency shall petition the revocation hearing officer appointed pursuant to Section 71622.5 of the Government Code to revoke and terminate postrelease supervision. At any point during the process initiated pursuant to this section, a person may waive, in writing, his or her right to counsel, admit the parole violation, waive a court hearing, and accept the proposed parole modification. The petition shall include a written report that contains additional information regarding the petition, including the relevant terms and conditions of postrelease supervision, the circumstances of the alleged underlying violation, the history and background of the violator, and any recommendations. The Judicial Council shall adopt forms and rules of court to establish uniform statewide procedures to implement this subdivision, including the minimum contents of supervision agency reports. Upon a finding that the person has violated the conditions of postrelease supervision, the revocation hearing officer shall have authority to do all of the following:


Return the person to parole supervision with modifications of conditions, if appropriate, including a period of incarceration in county jail.


Revoke parole and order the person to confinement in the county jail.


Refer the person to a reentry court pursuant to Section 3015 or other evidence-based program in the court’s discretion.


Confinement pursuant to paragraphs (1) and (2) of subdivision (a) shall not exceed a period of 180 days in the county jail.


In no case shall a person be under supervision or in custody pursuant to this title on or after three years from the date of the person’s initial entry onto postrelease supervision.
