Default Question about parole violation Kentucky

My husband made parole in KY on 8-29-14. They did not have his home plan approved so he got sent to the Half Way House in Paducah...NOT a good place for a recovering addict. He was denied his meetings for over a month and lo and behold the facility caught him a couple of weeks ago, he was charged with Promoting Contraband. I wont post all the crazy details...BUT...my question is does anyone know of the trend that the probation and parole board are having with technical violators? I hired him a lawyer and he thinks he can get the charge lessened. His PO is really gunning for him. In the preliminary parole hearing they said that they did see cause to open his parole back up to possibly revoke him, he also told them about the facility and PO withholding his meetings for a month. He doesn't need more prison time he needs help, we have made it clear that he wants to go to a transitional place like Dismas, We are praying the board does not revoke him....any one else in KY having this happen? Any one have any idea what could be the outcome? He is being held in the county jail. we just got married on 9-19...was waiting for him to come home...everyone was dragging their feet as we had to file for an interstate compact to get him to TN.

I hope his lawyer can help him, but the outcome will be completely up to the judge who hears the case. Best of luck.

Since you stated he was charged with promoting contraband, that is considered a new crime committed, not a technical violation, so yes, the board will revoke his parole. He also may face more time as he has a new charge as well.

Good luck.
