Guiding You Through the Complex Hearing Process

If you were released from incarceration on parole in Texas, you were given terms to follow to continue your community supervision.

However, facing allegations does not mean you are guilty of a violation, and you do have an opportunity to challenge the accusations.

What Happens if Parole Terms Are Violated in Texas?

When you are released on parole in Houston, you must follow specific conditions while in the community. Because each person's case is unique, the terms of parole vary, which can include, but are not limited to:

  • Reporting to a parole officer
  • Refraining from breaking city, state, and federal laws
  • Obtaining permission before moving
  • Obtaining permission before leaving the state
  • Not possessing firearms
  • Avoiding people considered to not be of good moral character

Failure to abide by the rules could result in various sanctions. For minor violations, the Parole Division may require that you attend counseling or treatment. However, for more serious violations, an arrest warrant may be issued in your name, and you could be sent back to prison if it's determined that you broke the terms of release.

Texas Parole Revocation Process

Before the Parole Division decides whether or not to revoke your parole, you will be scheduled for a preliminary and/or a revocation hearing. This part of the process allows you to challenge the accusations made against you. Although you have the option of waiving your rights to these hearings, doing so could mean a return to prison. Therefore, it's imperative that you retain a skilled lawyer to help fight the allegations and prevent severe consequences.

The Parole Division will investigate the violation accusations to gather evidence, such as documents or witness testimony, and attempt to prove that you failed to abide by the terms of your release. A hearing officer will review the information to determine whether or not probable cause has been established to sustain the allegations that you violated the conditions of your parole.

Before your preliminary or revocation hearing, the parole officer will provide you with the evidence that will be presented at the proceedings. Our attorneys will examine the information the officer has to find holes in their case and to strengthen the strategy we will build on your behalf. We will also represent you at the hearings to present evidence to defend against the allegations made against you.
