Q How can I tell when the Texas parole board will consider someone for parole?
It is not possible to know the exact date a case will be considered unless you have an appointment to discuss the matter with the parole board. We request an in person interview with the lead voter of the parole panel if we are hired and this will let us know when it will be considered. Outside of that it is only possible to have an estimated date. The Texas parole board will first consider an offender for parole around the time of their eligibility date. If they do not receive a favorable vote the board will set their next review date. Please call us on our toll free number 888-661-5030 and we would be happy to look into when the offender will be eligible for parole. If an offender is already in prison they will be informed of their parole eligibility date and it will be on their time sheet. If they have not entered TDCJ and the parole board has not begun processing their information depending on the type of crime they committed and the length of their sentence we can estimate their eligibility date. Once they have a TDCJ number you should be able to find the date by contacting the Texas parole board. You should also know that that this date is not necessarily the date when the parole board will consider or decide a case. It is best to consider this date an estimate. The board can consider a case either months in advance or some time after that date depending on when they receive all the necessary informaton. This is why if you are planning to hire a parole attorney it is best to do it at least six months in advance.
