Default Are we allowed to attend the Parole Hearing?

Or is just the Parole Board and him?? If we are allowed to we need permission first?

Sorry, you will not be allowed to go before the Parole Board. You can make a request to have a phone interview with one of the board members.

HE won't even meet with the parole board in most cases - they review the file and vote.....at least that's been the case with everyone I've heard about.

Kat's right. It's not at all like you see on tv with the individual sitting before 3 people behind a table. It's just a folder exchange from what I understand. The board members don't even meet together...just pass the folder from one office to the other's office.

I actually got to have a sit down interview with the lead voter.. Everyone has the right to request it... just doesn't happen too often unless you have an attorney! We were blessed to have Lori Redmond...!!!

Free Rico D --- I feel she did a wonderful job. She is very professional and she has a wonderful repoor with the parole committees.... She is pretty reknown in Texas so....
I know some people are against parole lawyers, but my thoughts are.. the what ifs... She is well worth the peace of mind for $1700... I actually spoke on that issue with our lead voter Lynn Ruzicka and she feels that it shows the family is determined to be behind him and has the financial means to help him get on his feet. (now it may not necessarily be so but hey if she likes it i am all for it cuz she voted on my baby to come home!!!!!

Hope that is helpful for ya!

Angel, was this your husbands first time up for parole and did he serve half his time? was his crime aggravated? reason for asking all these questions is because I have considered hiring Lori Redmann as well.
Ive thought about doing this myself but then again I figure with an attorney it might be a little more effective. If he gets denied then I would'nt feel as if I did not do everything in my power to help him by doing it myself. I don't know if she will even take my case but I need someone who is open and honest and does not mislead me or consider me just another case but takes our file seriously. Her relationship with the board is also a plus since we or he will not be able to stand in front of them when he is being reviewed. I am so happy your loved one is coming home!! Jeannie

Texasfem- His crime was aggravated...he served half his time... and it was his 1st time up for parole.... I know the feeling of wanting to do everything. We would rather pull out all the stops rather than be saying what if after the fact!! PM me if u need any additional info!!!

texas does not have parole hearings like other states. they have an official parole board, but only 2 of them actually review cases at a time.

I supose it is different for different situations, I an going to be able to sit in on the parole violation hearing and I get to speak, but there are two phases to it, the one that is done here at Sanchez and then the file goes to abiline, i will however bombard abiline with letters and with photos.. the problem with the parole board is they see the file that only states the negitive,,, the bad, the ugly,,, but the good is someting we out here have to bring to life....... let us know,

Everyone need to make sure that they are talking apples to apples. There is no hearing when an inmate is up for review for parole. Ashagirl described it correctly above.There is a hearing if someone already on parole is being considered for revocation. People in support of parole may be granted a telephone interview or possibly even a face-to-face meeting with a parole board member or commissioner before they vote for a parole decision on an inmate but this is a private meeting and is at the discretion of whichever voter grants the interview. There is no hearing in the review for parole.

mrscooper I was wondering is Sanchez just a state jail or do they also have TDCJ inmates? The reason I am asking is my husband is here in EPCJA and is waitin to pull chain and I was wondering if there is a chace he may come back here to do his time. Thanks so much.

State Jails do house TDC offenders. I hope he gets placed close to home but not many do. Good Luck and God Bless! Katy

what you need to know about lori redmond is , she will not take your case at all if she doesn't think she can send him home.

i have a lot of respect for her because she's honest, and she could have taken my 1500 dollars and said she would try, instead she said this time around there's no since in taken the case because his chances weren't good.

i love her for that, she's not crooked.

I realize that we can't attend the parole hearing but who would I contact to request a phone interview and when should I do that? Any help would be appreciated....this is the first time I have been through all of this and I am not sure how to go about it. I am in the process of getting support letters together also, but how do I know where to send them, etc?

I would send the request in writing to each parole panel member as the vote draws near. I would also suggest calling the office of that parole board and talking to them about requesting an interview.

Robinsman... Does this work with the Parole board review of 7.. He will interview with a person whom is a liaison to the board. He never see's the board members. Can I call and ask for an interview? The board of 7 is do to a capital offense. It’s so confusing...
