Parole and Probation: Parole Board


North Dakota Parole Board Mission

The mission of the Board is to conduct informed and fair hearings on cases subject to the jurisdiction of the Board and take appropriate action to ensure public and victim safety and to reduce the likelihood of future criminal behavior of offenders by providing opportunities for rehabilitation.

The members of the North Dakota Parole Board are appointed by the Governor for a term of three years. During the Fifty-Sixth Legislative Assembly the Parole Board was expanded from three to six members. The members are as follows:

Mr. Duane Houdek

Ms. Jennifer Thompson
Ms. Sheri Baker
Mr. Ronald Goodman
Mr. Norman Anderson
Mr. Robert Udland

Although there are six members, only three serve at each monthly parole board meeting.
