PER CURIAM. OPINION. Terry Newell's parole was revoked. At the hearing of the Parole Board at which this decision was made,
Newell's parole officer, who had recommended revocation, was allowed to sit in on the Board's deliberations. Newell claims
that this action by the Board denied him his rights to due process of law. 1 We agree. Newell was convicted of forgery in 1975, and was sentenced to four years. He was paroled in May, 1977. On October 17, 1977,
Newell's parole officer, Barton Penny, submitted to the Board a field report listing six alleged parole violations by Newell
and recommending parole revocation. In response to this report, William Lyons, a Board member, on November 17 issued a warrant
for Newell's arrest, and Newell was arrested on November 24. A preliminary hearing was held before Sam Trivette, the Board's
executive director, on November 28, and Trivette found probable cause for revocation. He ordered Newell incarcerated pending
the final hearing before the Board.
