Q Who decides who gets parole in Texas?
In Texas the Board of Pardons and Paroles decides who is granted parole. The Board is composed of seven board members and twelve commissioners. There are six regional parole offices. At each regional office there is one board member two commissioners. The majority of offenders will have their case decide by a parole panel consisting of the one board member and two commissioners at the regional parole office. For a vote to be final two of the voters must be in agreement.
