Supervised Release Revocation & Due Process

Hearsay is not admissible in supervised release revocation hearings unless the government shows good cause to deny the releasee's Due Process right to cross-examine adverse witnesses.
To determine good cause, hearing officers must consider:
  1. the reliability of the hearsay, and
  2. the cause why the witness is not produced.
