Parole Attorney in Plano, Texas
Understanding the Parole Process
The parole process in Texas is one of the most intimidating and daunting
challenges facing a person that has been convicted of a crime. There have
been many criticisms of the Texas parole system—primarily, that
it is fraught with
fraud and disparate treatment of inmates. When your loved one is being considered
for parole it is vital that you hire an attorney with the integrity and
zealous attitude required to represent an inmate before the Texas Board
of Pardons and Paroles.
The most important thing to remember about the parole process is that the
decision to release an inmate on parole is discretionary. This means that
your ability to get out on parole depends entirely on the judgment of
the three-member parole panel. This fact, coupled with the sheer number
of parole decisions made daily is enough to suggest that the parole process
can become cumbersome.
Before an inmate even has a chance to state his or her case to the parole
board, the deck will be stacked against him. The District Attorney's
Office that filed the charges and prosecuted the inmate, the trial court,
the arresting law enforcement agency and the Texas Department of Criminal
Justice will send information regarding the case to be placed in the inmate's
file. By the time the Parole Board even opens up the inmate's file,
there will be a mountain of information against the inmate.
Review & Parole Eligibility Date
An inmate will begin to undergo review six months prior to his or her parole
eligibility date. During this six-month window, the Parole Board can vote
on the inmate's parole at any time. However, the average Parole Board
member will not have the ability to fully investigate the inmate's
parole application. It is for this reason that you must hire a Plano parole
attorney that is prepared to fight for you or your loved one during this
