This matter is on pro se Petition for Review of the denial of administrative relief by the Pennsylvania Board of Probation and Parole (Board).

Petitioner, Edwin Walker, was sentenced to a term of imprisonment for life following his conviction for first-degree murder. He received a commutation, which resulted in a modified sentence of sixteen (16) years, seven (7) months and sixteen (16) days to life effective July 30, 1957. Mr. Walker was re-paroled from that sentence on December 29, 1987. The parole was subject to general and specific conditions. On November 14, 1996, the City of Philadelphia Police Department arrested Mr. Walker on new criminal charges. These charges were subsequently dismissed, however, the Board lodged a detainer against him based upon a technical violation of parole. Agents of the Pennsylvania Attorney General subsequently arrested Mr. Walker in Luzerne County. After detention and final violation hearings, Mr. Walker was detained pending disposition of the Luzerne County charges. *fn1 Following a November 2, 1998 revocation hearing on the technical parole violation, Mr. Walker was recommitted based upon the decision of the Board mailed on January 22, 1999. On November 10, 1999, after a hearing, the Board revoked Mr. Walker’s parole on the basis of his September 29, 1999 convictions. By decision mailed on March 6, 2000, the Board ordered him recommitted as a convicted parole violator based upon evidence of his September 29, 1999 convictions.
