Florida Parole Commission Chairman Jimmie Henry resigned, citing personal and family reasons, while law enforcement agents are looking into allegations involving the commission stemming from an audit, the Associated Press reports.
Henry has been a commissioner for six years and chairman of the three-member panel since 1998. The commission makes decision on parole and post-prison supervision for prisoners. Last week, Henry submitted his resignation to Gov. Jeb Bush. The Florida Department of Law Enforcement is looking into an unspecified “matter” involving the commission and Henry, based on information from an inquiry by the state Auditor General’s Office.
