Default Parole: He has cancer, any chance they'll consider that & grant parole?

My husband has been incarcerated since 2016 in TDCJ. He has a 40 year sentence on a non aggravated non 3g offense. He has an enhancement on what is normally a state jail felony. His offense is over 1 less than 4 grams of methamphetamine.
He was recently diagnosed with cancer my question is with him being 50 years old he's had one infraction in four years and he is up for parole review. His review date is for 04/03/2020. Is there any chance that they may consider that and release him on parole?

I can't answer that, but I sure hope they do & he can come Home! Sending you both positive energy for a vote to parole


FYI: Get your ducks in a row now in case they don't approve parole so you can file for Compassionate Release

We definitely have some folks around here who would know more about this subject than I would, but I want to pass along my best wishes to him and my hopes that he will get parole at his hearing date. Wishing him much strength in the fight against cancer.

With many cancers being curable if found early, at least in IL this would not be a deciding factor unless he had a terminal prognosis.

Hopefully Texas is different.

It's possible. If you attempt to see it through the eyes of the Parole Board, there are a lot of factors and variables to sort through.....and that's not always easy. Cancer is not an automatic FI or ticket to getting out on parole and while I don't want to say anything that will make feel worse than you already do, know that there are people who die in prison from cancer and other illnesses that are eligible for release. I saw more than one man die at the Michael unit in Tennessee Colony in the hospice they have there for terminally ill prisoners.
The fact that he's been to prison more than once is not a good thing. The fact that his instant offense is an enhanced state jail felony is something that could help him, but still......I wouldn't put too much faith in the part about it's only a state jail felony or he's got cancer and I want him home. He has a chance to come home and for the time being HOPE itself is the thing we cling to and live for. Try not stress over it. Everything will work out. Breathe

I'm hope he gets approved, and I'm sorry to hear the cancer prognosis. I would get a parole attorney (if you can), he would have a better chance of getting out and receiving better treatment. Hang in there! Prayers for you guys.

Thank you all for the help. He's currently in a West Texas hospital. His family and I are currently working towards a compassionate release. His unit is also being very sympathetic and helping as well. With God all things are possible.

I hope he is released. Here's a Texas Tribune article about your State's compassionate release policy.

It wasnt his first rodeo so to speak. Also he is a black man in a predominately white county. Idc what anyone says i was at trial his attorney won the case fr bc of reasonable doubt but the jury returned with a verdict in less of an hour
