A prisoner who is eligible for parole has the right to make application
for parole or absolute discharge from imprisonment and may request a hearing
before the parole board (or designated hearing officer). The board will
then either approve, with conditions the Board deems appropriate, or reject
the prisoner's application for parole. A conditional parole release
means a prisoner is released to serve the remainder of the prison term
outside the confines of prison as long as the parolee abides by all of
the terms and conditions of their release requirements. If a parolee is
accused of violating any of these conditions while out on parole, a hearing
will be held before the parole board so the parolee can defend against
the evidence being presented against him/her. Our firm also handles these
parole violation hearings which may result after an individual has been
released on parole. The most common type of scenario is when the parolee
is accused of violating a technical condition of parole, such as:
- Failing to attend mandatory classes
- Failing to pay fines or restitution
- Failing to report to a parole officer
- Failing a drug test
Another reason a parolee might be accused of violating the terms and conditions
of parole would be if he/she has been charged with committing a new crime
while on parole. If you need assistance with the parole application process
or are facing a parole hearing and possible new criminal charges, this
Firm can help.
An interstate compact agreement allows an individual who is on probation
or parole to reside in another state -- provided that certain conditions
and requirements are met. In general, the "receiving" state
(i.e., where a person wants to go) must agree to assume the supervision
duties of the probationer or parolee. Generally speaking, to be eligible
for interstate compact, an individual must be a resident of, have family
in, or demonstrate access to a permanent residence in the "receiving"
state. If you need assistance in establishing an interstate compact agreement,
contact the Firm today to discuss your options.
The firm also assists individuals who are seeking work furlough release
during their term of incarceration in jail. This may include the option
to maintain current employment while incarcerated, or perhaps even to
seek new employment. For assistance in determining your eligibility for
these types of programs, or other prisoners' rights issues,
contact a Tempe criminal appeals lawyer to discuss your options.
