Default TDCJ treating his case like a 3G. Who can he contact or write for help?

My husband has never been down for a 3G offense and he does not have a 3G offense this time, but they are treating his case like a 3G. Who can he contact or write for help?

Once someone is convicted of a 3g offense, they will have the same stipulations each time they are reincarnated.

When you say "treated as 3g" there's a few things to consider that are important. Yes, if you pick up another felony (non 3g) with less time to serve WHILE SERVING THE REMAINDER OF A 3G OFFENSE WITH GREATER TIME at the same time then, you could say it's a 3g like circumstance because there are 2 situations going on inwhich the 3g offense is greater. If the same situation holds true but the non 3g offense is the larger sentence then.....it just depends on how things line up with parole eligibility dates and what not. IF SOMEONE HAS COMPLETELY DISCHARGED A 3G OFFENSE AND THEN PICKED UP A NON 3G OFFENSE it is not accurate to say that their situation is being treated as 3g because 1) the new offense is not a "serve 50% flat:" scenario before eligibility for parole and 2) you won't know if until the parole board votes as to how much time was served on the sentence to say it's being treated 3g. Yes, if someone serves more than 1/2 of a non 3g sentence then one could say "the parole board treated my offense 3g because I did 1/2 or more of the sentence flat." That's not always the case, though and until you reach the 1/2 way mark there's no way of really knowing that.
Once you make parole, with a 3g history you're more likely to be faced with some type of ankle monitor situation of some type whether it be EM, GPS or SISP but it depends on the board's view of things and one's conduct record in prison. There are other variables aswell, the notion that once 3g always 3g is not accurate in some cases and what those cases/circumstances are are case by case. The attitude of the parole board member voting is also something to consider.

Thank you for all of the information. He does not have a 3g history and he is not incarcerated for a 3g offense. He has served 16 months on a 2 year sentence. I would like to know if there is anyone he can write? Would it help if he wrote a letter to Parole?

Sorry for the late reply. It's always helps when one of us inside writes the board. How much does it help? I don't know. It's easy enough to find out who the 3 board members are in the region he's assigned. Admitting fault/responsibility for what happened, proof/documents to do with positive change (vocational, academic, etc.) and a plan for the future upon release are the high points of what needs to be said.
At the same time and I'm not trying to sound callous or insensitive, he has the minimum, 2 years that can be given some one with the exception of a state jail felony. It's not unusual to see someone pull the whole thing. In the eyes of some, it's only 2 years when in fact it could be considerably more. Sentences inside of 5 years are harder to figure out concerning parole because they're the the smallest. It stands to reason one should anticipate doing more time on that kind of sentence. It's been that way for as long as I can remember. There are exceptions to that norm, but it's hard to get a handle on the why and who of it.
