The Parole Board treats Burglary of a Habitation as a serious offense and so should you.
The majority of clients in TDCJ for Burglary of a Habitation will be eligible for parole after receiving credit for twenty five percent of their sentence. That means they are eligible for parole in Texas when their good time plus calendar time is equal to ¼ of their sentence. However, if a deadly weapon was used they will not be eligible for parole until their calendar time is equal to half of their sentence.
Just because an offender is eligible for parole does not mean they will be granted parole. It means that the Texas Parole Board will consider the offender for parole. The parole board treats this offense seriously because of the impact it has on the victims and the potential there is for things to go wrong and for someone to be hurt. As Texas Parole Attorney’s we have represented numerous offenders serving sentences for Burglary. We work hard to learn all the possible reasons that an offender should be granted parole and would be successful on parole. We research the underlying case, the offender’s criminal history, and meet with the offender and their family numerous times in order to present a complete, accurate and persuasive presentation to the Texas Parole Board. Additionally, we always request an in person interview with the lead voter in order to discuss the case and bring witnesses who can speak to the lead voter about why parole should be granted.
