What does this "offense" (Revocation of supervised release) mean?

In my eye, "Revocation of supervised release" refers to a court decision, not an offense.

It sounds like that this convict was supposed to be paroled on May 19, 2007.

   [rev-uh-key-shuhn] Show IPA
the act of revoking; annulment.
Law . nullification or withdrawal, especially of an offer to contract.

Supervised release sounds like another term for parole which is the time spent out of prison where an exprisoner has to report back to his parole officer on a set schedule. As in your other thread regarding somewhat the same topic, it appears this and other sex offenders have been sentenced to a further imprisonment that has been added above and beyond his or her original court deemed conviction.
