Is Someone On Parole Entitled To A Bond?
– RJ, Texas
No. A parolee is not entitled to bond. If someone has pending charges most parolees don’t get a hearing until after the resolution of their criminal case. The parole board has 30 days after a hearing to issue a decision or reopen for more evidence.
If someone has had a hearing and it’s been more than 30 days they can file a habeas corpus petition in the court that sentenced them to prison.
