BURNcast.TV is reporting that Paul Addis has been granted parole by unanimous vote from the Nevada State Parole Board. Paul was sentenced up to 4 years for attempting to burn down the Burning Man sculpture at the 2007 event and has been serving time in a Nevada State prison since June 27, 2008. A release date has not yet been set.

UPDATE: Amacker posted more information regarding Paul’s parole.

Paul stated his parole plan: he has work lined up as an auto-emissions inspector in Vegas, and only when his time is up, in February 2010, will he return to the Bay Area. And for how long, it’s unknown, but I think his heart is on traveling.
