JACKSON — Gov. Phil Bryant named former Hinds County Sheriff Malcolm McMillin to lead the state Parole Board.
The five-member board has discretion over which inmates are released from prison on parole.
The board also investigates applicants for gubernatorial pardons and makes recommendations. However, Mississippi governors aren’t bound by the board’s recommendations.
The board recommended against pardons for some of the people who got reprieves from former Gov. Haley Barbour as he left office in January.
Shannon Warnock was the previous leader of the board.
