WVC 28 - 1 - 6
§28-1-6. Discharge or parole; arrest and return of paroled boys.
The state commissioner of public institutions shall have
authority, under such rules and regulations as the commissioner
may prescribe, to grant, on the recommendation of the
superintendent, a discharge or parole to any inmate of any of the
various facilities; but while such inmate is on parole, and until
he is discharged according to law, he shall remain in the legal
custody of the commissioner of public institutions and subject at
any time to be returned to physical custody, if in the judgment
of the commissioner the interests of such paroled inmate will
best be served thereby. The written order of said commissioner,
countersigned by the superintendent, shall be sufficient warrant
for any officer or person named therein to arrest and return to
the facility the youth so paroled; and it shall be the duty of
any such officer or person to arrest and return such youth to the
facility. All actual expenses incurred in returning such youth
to the facility shall be paid out of the funds appropriated for
the maintenance of the facility.
