Attorneys for Parole Review in Texas

Prisoners who have been convicted of criminal offenses will often be sentenced to jail time. Life in prison can be difficult and dangerous, and prisoners will want to explore every opportunity that may allow them to be released. Fortunately, parole may be available for certain prisoners in Texas, and those who are granted parole may begin taking steps to return to their families, seek employment, and live in their communities while avoiding further criminal activity. However, before a person can receive parole, they will need to be approved by the Texas Board of Pardons and Paroles, which will conduct a parole review.

To successfully receive parole, a prisoner may need to provide the right information to the parole board and demonstrate that they will be able to reintegrate into the community successfully. During the parole review process, the assistance of an attorney can be invaluable. At Pullan & Young, we can provide guidance to prisoners in these situations, and we can ensure that the right information is presented to a parole panel. With our help, prisoners can take steps to show that they deserve an early release, and they can address any issues that might delay the parole process.

Understanding the Parole Review Process

For all prisoners except those who have been convicted of offenses that prevent them from receiving parole, a parole eligibility date will be determined by the Texas Department of Criminal Justice (TDCJ). The first time a prisoner becomes eligible for parole, the TDCJ will perform a review of their case six months prior to their parole eligibility date. For any subsequent parole reviews, a review will be conducted four months prior to the parole review date. A parole review will involve the following steps:

  • People who were involved in the person's criminal case will be notified. These will include the victims and/or their family members, as well as law enforcement officials who played a role in the case, such as the prosecutor.
  • The prisoner will be interviewed by an Institutional Parole Officer (IPO). The IPO will compile information about the case and the prisoner's life inside and outside of prison, such as their family and living situation, their past jobs and future employment prospects, and their education and criminal history. The IPO will then submit a written report to the parole panel.
  • Information about the case may be provided to the parole panel. An attorney may submit written statements that provide arguments in support of parole. Statements from other parties may also be submitted, such as letters from the prisoner's family members. Information about the prisoner's rehabilitation, education, participation in support programs, or other supporting documentation may also be provided to the panel.
  • The parole panel may hold interviews with the prisoner's attorney and other witnesses, such as family members or victims. In some cases, the parole panel may interview the prisoner, although this is relatively rare and will usually only occur in certain types of cases.
  • The members of the parole panel will vote on whether to approve parole. If parole is denied, a date will be set for the next parole review. If parole is approved, the panel may put special conditions in place that must be followed after the prisoner's release, such as the requirement to check in regularly with a parole officer, pass drug tests on an ongoing basis, and maintain employment.
