What is GRAD in Texas Prisons?


    GRAD stands for Gang Renouncement and Disassociation.  It is a process for confirmed gang members to renounce their gang membership.  It is a nine-month program consisting of different types of classes related to behavior and substance abuse and work assignments.  Each class has 16 offenders and is composed of a mixture of offenders from various Security Threat Groups.  If an offender successfully completes the program they are released back to general population.  If an offender is a confirmed gang member going through the GRAD Program is highly encouraged if they want a chance at being granted parole.  There are certain requirements that must be met for admission into the class and there is a waiting period.  As Texas parole lawyers we are asked what an offender should do if they have been confirmed as a gang member, we encourage them to sign up for this program.  If you have questions regarding the parole process, parole eligibility, or how you can help someone obtain a favorable parole vote please fill out an online contact form or call us for a free consultation.
