Life imprisonment in Austria

Parole may be granted to certain inmates in Austria after 15 years' imprisonment, if prison officials are satisfied that the inmate will not re-offend.

This is subject to the discretion of a criminal court panel, and a possible appeal to the high court. Alternatively, the President may grant a pardon following a motion of the Minister of Justice.

Inmates who committed their crime when they were below the age of 21 can be sentenced to a maximum of 20 years imprisonment.[1]
