OPINION NOT REPORTED
MEMORANDUM OPINION BY COVEY, Judge.
Jorge Berrios (Berrios) petitions this Court for review of the Pennsylvania Board of Probation and Parole's (Board) May 13, 2016 order denying his request for administrative relief. Berrios is represented in this matter by Assistant Public Defender Seth E. Grant, Esquire (Counsel), who has filed a Petition for Leave of Court to Withdraw as Appellate Counsel (Application). After review, we deny Counsel's Application.
Berrios is an inmate at the State Correctional Institution (SCI) at Graterford. On June 14, 2002, the Board paroled Berrios to Kintock Community Corrections Center from a 7 to 15-year sentence for third-degree murder (Original Sentence). At that time, his maximum sentence release date was August 27, 2010. As a condition of his parole, Berrios agreed:
Certified Record (C.R.) at 7. Berrios did not object to the above-quoted parole condition. On May 2, 2009, Berrios was arrested on drug charges. On May 3, 2009, the trial court set bail in the amount of $8,000.00, which Berrios did not post. On May 4, 2009, the Board issued a warrant to commit and detain Berrios pending disposition of the drug charges. On August 20, 2009, the trial court changed Berrios' bail to release on his own recognizance.
On April 22, 2010, Berrios was convicted of manufacturing, delivering, or possessing with intent to manufacture or deliver, a controlled substance and conspiracy to manufacture, deliver, or possess with intent to manufacture or deliver, a controlled substance, and the trial court revoked his bail. On June 14, 2010, Berrios was sentenced to 2 consecutive terms of 2 to 4 years incarceration, for an aggregate sentence of 4 to 8 years incarceration.
On July 2, 2010, the Board served Berrios with a notice of charges and notice of the Board's intent to hold a parole revocation hearing. On July 14, 2010, the Board held the revocation hearing at SCI-Rockview, at which Berrios was represented by counsel. The Board Examiner voted on July 20, 2010 and, five additional Board members voted between August 4 and September 20, 2010, to recommit Berrios as a convicted parole violator (CPV) and reparole him to a state detainer sentence. On October 2, 2013, Berrios was reparoled to the Philadelphia Community Corrections Center. Berrios' new maximum sentence release date was October 6, 2017. As a condition of his parole, Berrios agreed:
C.R. at 76. Berrios did not raise any objections to the above-quoted parole condition. On June 20, 2014, Berrios was arrested on new drug charges (New Charges). That same date, the trial court set bail in the amount of $25,000.00, which Berrios did not post. Also on June 20, 2014, the Board issued a warrant to commit and detain Berrios pending disposition of the New Charges. On June 23, 2015, Berrios pled guilty to manufacturing, delivering, or possessing with intent to manufacture or deliver, a controlled substance. On September 4, 2015, Berrios was sentenced to 1½ to 3 years incarceration followed by 5 years probation.
On November 3, 2015, the Board served Berrios with a notice of charges and notice of the Board's intent to hold a parole revocation hearing. That day, Berrios admitted to the parole violation, and waived his right to counsel and a revocation hearing. On November 19 and December 8, 2015, respectively, Board members voted to recommit Berrios as a CPV to serve 18 months backtime without credit for time spent at liberty on parole. By decision recorded on January 29, 2016 (mailed February 10, 2016), the Board formally recommitted Berrios as a CPV to serve 18 months backtime with a maximum sentence release date of November 29, 2022.
The Board calculated Berrios' new maximum sentence release date as follows. When Berrios was released on parole on October 15, 2010, his Original Sentence maximum release date was October 6, 2017 and, thus, he owed 2,548 days of backtime on his Original Sentence. The Board chose not to credit Berrios for his time spent at liberty on parole and, since the Board lodged its detainer on the same day the trial court set Berrios' unposted bail, the Board did not give Berrios credit toward his Original Sentence for his pre-trial incarceration on the New Charges. Berrios did not become available to serve his Original Sentence until December 8, 2015, the date he was recommitted as a CPV. Adding 2,548 days to December 8, 2015 resulted in Berrios' new November 29, 2022 Original Sentence maximum release date.
On March 9, 2016, Berrios submitted an Administrative Remedies Form challenging the Board's decision recorded on January 29, 2016 (mailed February 10, 2016), which formally recommitted Berrios as a CPV. On May 13, 2016, the Board denied Berrios' request for administrative relief. Berrios appealed pro se to this Court.
This Court has held that in order to withdraw, "counsel . . . must provide a `no-merit' letter which details `the nature and extent of [counsel's] review and list[s] each issue the petitioner wished to have raised, with counsel's explanation of why those issues are meritless.'" Zerby v. Shanon, 964 A.2d 956, 961 (Pa. Cmwlth. 2009) (quoting Commonwealth v. Turner, 544 A.2d 927, 928 (Pa. 1988)). "[C]ounsel must fully comply with the procedures outlined in Turner to ensure that each of the petitioner's claims has been considered and that counsel has  substantive reason[s] for concluding that those claims are meritless." Hont v. Pa. Bd. of Prob. & Parole, 680 A.2d 47, 48 (Pa. Cmwlth. 1996). Counsel is also required to "notify the parolee of his request to withdraw, furnish the parolee with either a copy of a[n Anders] brief. . . or a no-merit letter satisfying the requirements of Turner, and inform the parolee of his right to retain new counsel or submit a brief on his own behalf." Reavis v. Pa. Bd. of Prob. & Parole, 909 A.2d 28, 33 (Pa. Cmwlth. 2006). This Court must then "conduct its own independent review of the petition to withdraw and must concur in counsel's assessment before [it] may grant counsel leave to withdraw." Hont, 680 A.2d at 48.
Here, Counsel served Berrios with his Anders brief and Application, and notified Berrios that he may either obtain substitute counsel or file a brief on his own behalf.
Accordingly, Counsel's Application is denied without prejudice. Counsel has 30 days to either file an amended Application and Anders brief that adequately addresses each of the issues raised in Berrios' request for administrative relief, or to submit a brief on the merits.
