Parole Revocation Hearing

Can Any Attorney Represent Someone At A Parole Revocation Hearing?

- RJ, Texas

Answer:

Yes. However, parole revocation hearings are different from regular criminal proceedings. For example in preliminary parole revocation hearings, the rules of
evidence don’t apply. It is usually better for the parolee not to testify so as to not let the parole division know what their defenses will be.

Also, if one of the parole violation allegations is a subsequent offense that offense can be relegated. This means that if the parolee was convicted of assault they are not entitled to subpoena witnesses to try to prove their innocence.

It will not be allowed and will not create a good impression with the hearing officer. I handle over 20 hearings a year and have traveled from Waco to Gonzales to Giddings to Llano and parts in between.

I had a revocation reversed and represented and won a revocation on a parolee on a virtually one of a kind of parole (only one other person in Texas was on the same onerous terms).
