In the timeline where all lawyers were abolished in the United States by the 21st century, USA Today ran an article on Joey Baines in their October 22, 2015 issue. The article, Parole denied again, mentioned that this was Joey's twelfth consecutive parole hearing to end in denial. He was serving a twenty year term at Folsom for racketeering and had spent some ⅔ years of his life behind bars.
In 1985A, Dave McFly was on parole, presumably from Folsom, after apparently having been in trouble with the police, which his stepfather Biff Tannen owned. Biff threatened to have Dave's parole revoked and have him put in prison if Lorraine left him.
