can you help me understand this? i don't get the distinction. you don't have a right to a parole hearing after 25 years, but you can't get one until you've served 25 years? i don't get it.
I understood this to mean that you have to serve 25 years before you can ask for a parole hearing but it's discretionary - they don't have to give you one.
