    Hey all, just a quick question here:

    If a criminal is offered parole before his sentence is over, must s/he take it?

    Nope, definitely not. You're offered parole if you've shown that you've been upstanding or rehabilitated, hopefully you will take it. We all know there are repeat offenders - most of the time to get back in jail as they're unused to the outside world. If the person knows they can't handle the outside world from the get-go, skip the parole and stay in jail.
