AS 33.20.040. Released Prisoner.

(a) Except as provided in (c) of this section, a prisoner released under AS 33.20.030 shall be released on mandatory parole to the custody and jurisdiction of the parole board under AS 33.16, until the expiration of the maximum term to which the prisoner was sentenced, if the term or terms of imprisonment are two years or more. However, a prisoner released on mandatory parole may be discharged under AS 33.16.210 before the expiration of the term. A prisoner who was sentenced to a term or terms of imprisonment of less than two years shall be unconditionally discharged from mandatory parole.

(b) This section does not prevent delivery of a prisoner to the authorities of a state or the United States entitled to the custody of the prisoner.

(c) If a prisoner's sentence includes a residual period of probation, the probationary period shall run concurrently with a period of mandatory parole for that sentence and the prisoner shall be under the concurrent jurisdiction of the court and the parole board. Nothing in this section precludes both the court and the parole board from revoking the prisoner's probation and mandatory parole for the same conduct. A period of imprisonment resulting from the revocation of probation or mandatory parole may be imposed consecutively in the discretion of the court or the parole board.
