Q Will the Texas Parole Board see cases that were dismissed?
When the parole board is reviewing an offender’s case they will see the offenders complete criminal history. If a plea agreement was reached where one or more cases were dismissed they will see all the charges and have information relating to each of them. Additionally, they will have information about the offender’s prior criminal history including previous periods of community supervision.
Offenders and their families are sometimes surprised to learn this because some say that one of the reasons they took the plea agreement was that they believed it would increase the likelihood of parole. An important part of our job as Texas parole lawyers is to do a thorough review of an offender’s criminal history and current offense and gain an understanding of what happened in each instance. It our belief that to convince the parole board that an offender is ready for parole it is necessary to face the negatives.
