Mesa Criminal Appeals Attorney

Prisoners' Rights: Parole Hearings, Interstate Compact and Work Furlough

Our firm handles cases involving prisoners' rights, including: parole hearings, matters involving interstate compact requests and assistance with participation in work furlough programs. 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. Our firm also handles 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 either a technical condition of parole, or has been charged with committing a new crime while on parole.

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 Mesa 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
