Q
What is ISF? A Texas parole lawyer explains what ISF is in the context of parole

A

         ISF stands for Intermediate Sanctions Facility.  In the context of parole it is one of the options the Texas Board of Pardons and Paroles has for sanctioning a parolee who they have determined has violated a condition of their parole.   ISF takes place in a confined location and can last between 60 and 180 depending on the condition imposed by the parole board.  Once in ISF the parolee must act in accordance with the rules of the facility.

         If one is facing allegations of parole violations you should contact an experienced Houston parole lawyer at 713-651-1444 immediately. Do not waive your right to a revocation hearing nor should you make any admissions about allegations.  In spite of what a parole officer may have told you there is no guarantee that you will not get revoked and there is no guarantee that ISF is the worst case scenario.  Your freedom is at stake and you should do everything possible to ensure you are not sent back to TDCJ.  

         If you hire us our first goal is to determine if there is a defense to the allegations that parole has been violated.  We will attempt to get a finding that there is no probable cause to believe a violation took place.  If the hearing officer makes that finding you do not have to be concerned with the possibility of ISF.  However, if the hearing officer does find that probable cause exists then we present a plan and reasons why your parole should be continued.  The number one goal is always to keep a parolee from returning to prison.  Please call us or fill out our secure online contact form if there is a blue warrant or if you are worried about your parole.  Our offices are in Houston and we represent individuals accused of violating their parole in Harris County, Brazoria County, Galveston County, Montgomery County, and other surrounding areas.
