The chairman of the State Parole Board says his panel approved Ophelia De’Lonta’s release last month.  De’Lonta remains in custody at the Buckingham Correctional Center in Dillwyn pending the approval of a parole plan. De’Lonta began life as Michael A. Stokes and has served 31 years of a 73-year sentence for robbery. She has been diagnosed with gender identity disorder.
