(3) If a majority of the panel finds that the sanction was not reasonable, relative to the crime of conviction, the violation committed, the offender's risk of reoffending, or the safety of the community, then the appeals panel shall reverse, vacate, remand or modify the decision.

(4) The appeals panel will also examine evidence presented at the hearing. If a majority of the panel finds that any finding of a violation was based solely on allegations that were not, or could not be confirmed, then the appeals panel shall reverse, vacate, remand or modify the decision.
