If you or someone you care about is in prison in Texas, there may be a way to lessen the sentence by means of parole. While each case is different, being prepared ahead of time is an important step. Hiring a parole attorney can be the difference between staying in prison and being free.
When is an inmate eligible for parole?
This depends on why the inmate is in prison. Some are eligible after a few months while in other cases, it may take years before they are eligible.
When should you start preparing for a parole hearing?
You should start your preparation at least a year in advance. Contact a Texas parole attorney for more information on how to best prepare.
Should you make a parole packet?
It is optional to create this packet. However, it wouldn’t hurt. Be sure to include documents that support the release of the incarcerated individual including what they plan to do after they are released.
What happens if you violate your parole?
There will be a revocation hearing. It is extremely important that you do not waive this right. Every parolee should be able to tell his or her story as to why the violations occurred. Not every violation will result in the parolee going back to prison.
