The Texas Board of Pardons and Paroles considers large numbers of parole eligible offenders for parole every week. Given these numbers and the difficult decisions they must make it is important that the lead voter be given strong information in support of an offender’s parole and it is equally important that the information be presented to the lead voter in a way that will ensure they take it into consideration.
A parole packet is information submitted to the Parole Board on behalf of an offender. It is an opportunity to provide the Texas Parole Board with relevant information that they otherwise may not get. It can include information regarding the impact of incarceration, parole plans, the support system and additional information regarding their criminal history and current offense. It can include letters, degrees, certificates, resumes and other types of documents. Texas Parole Packets can be difficult and stressful to write because it is often hard to decide what is relevant to the board’s decision and what the best way to present that information will be. We believe it is beneficial to have an attorney with experience representing offenders before the parole board write the parole packet and then make a presentation to the lead voter. As Texas Parole Lawyers we have years of experience writing and compiling parole packets and presenting them to the Texas Parole Board. We use that experience to discover every piece of available information that would help in getting a positive parole vote. We help the family in obtaining the proper types of information for submission to the parole board. Additionally, we help guide the family through the difficult and confusing process.
We believe to be effective a parole packet must have honest specific information that is relevant to the Board’s decision making as opposed to vague and general statements that fail to address the problems that led to an offender’s incarceration. Through lengthy discussions with an offender’s support system, the offender and other research we are able to provide the Board with an in depth understanding of our client and an understanding of their parole plan and why they will be successful on parole.
