Is Someone Entitled To An Attorney At A Parole Revocation Hearing?

by Richard Jones  - June 6, 2023

A person accused of violating their parole is entitled to a hearing.  A parolee is not entitled to bond. A parolee may have an attorney present but is not entitled to have one appointed unless they have a low I.Q. or have a mental illness.

If the parolee does not fall into one of those categories, the parolee may hire their own attorney.

If they cannot afford an attorney, the hearing can and will proceed without an attorney. An attorney can be of great help in making sure the proper procedures are followed.
