MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) — The Alabama Bureau of Pardons and Paroles says parole hearings are expected to resume around Nov. 1.

The agency made the announcement Wednesday after hundreds of parole hearings had been postponed.

The agency said the postponements were necessary after the board's operations division could not ensure the new director that they were in compliance with a new notification law.

Director Charlie Graddick called it an "uncalled-for-situation."

He says he expects to have the system up and running on, or around, Nov. 1.

The Alabama Bureau of Pardons and Paroles said a total of 627 hearings were postponed that had been scheduled for September and October.
