Houston Parole Violation Lawyer
Honoring a Conditional Release in Fort Bend County
If you were imprisoned and granted parole you need to be sure that you
adhere to every single term of your parole. Parole is a privilege not
easily granted and once it is obtained, you need to do everything possible
to keep yourself from returning to prison for violating your parole terms.
When released on parole, you were given conditions for your release that
defined specific areas such as where you can live, who you can live with,
who you are allowed to associate with (for example, if you were arrested
and incarcerated for a gang-related crime, you cannot associate with gang
members) and where you can work. Typically, parolees cannot drink or do
drugs and must adhere to curfew requirements. If you are accused of violating
any terms of a parole, you need to contact a Houston
criminal defense attorney from Stornello Law Firm, P.C..
Parolees need to prove that they are diligent and safe members of society.
Being granted parole is sometimes viewed as a "trial run" to
your incorporation back into the community and failure to meet any standards
set by the court and Parole Board can have severe consequences. If you
are arrested and tried for a new criminal conviction while on parole,
you could be placed back into prison and required to serve a longer sentence
and receive stricter penalties. Failing a drug test, not meeting with
a parole officer or committing a new offense are some of the most commonly
violated parole terms that land an individual back in prison.
