Criminal Defense Attorney: Defending the Rights of the Accused and the Incarcerated

    If you or a loved one has been sentenced to TDCJ for three years chances are they will have a chance to come home before completing the sentence.  The Texas Parole Board will decide if an offender should be released on parole.  For the majority of Texas offenders serving three years they will be eligible for parole after receiving credit for nine months.  If the offender diligently participates in programs and avoids getting in trouble they could receive nine months credit in less than four and a half months.

    However, if you or a loved one is serving time on a 3(g) offense you will have to serve two years before becoming eligible for parole.  Additionally, if an offender an offender is serving a drug related offense and there was an affirmative school zone finding they will not become eligible for parole.

    Just because an offender is eligible for parole does not mean they will be granted parole.  The Texas Parole Board looks at a variety of factors when making their determination.  As experienced Texas Parole Lawyers it is our job to advocate for our client to the Board and provide them with a thorough picture of our client and why they will be successful on parole.  For more information on our services please call us or fill out an online contact form for a free consultation.  Our office is in Houston and our parole work takes us to prison units across the State of Texas representing offenders from Houston, Dallas, Austin, San Antonio and numerous other cities across the Texas.
