Denial of Parole and Next Parole Packet
Unfortunately, many potential parolees are denied their first parole and the reasons given are usually just a form, particularly the one known as 2d, which doesn't seem to fit most people despite it being used so often.
Regardless, it is still important for there to be a new parole packet done each time parole is being considered.
There are a number of reasons for this. The first reason is that, obviously, what was in the parole packet didn't work the first time and so it should be corrected and added to if possible. Even if the initial packet was extremely good, the offender has still spent additional time away from their family and friends and there is no reason not to address that in the support letters written.
In addition, if the offender has been continuing their education, taking classes offered through the Texas Department of Criminal Justice while in the Texas prison, outside entities, or even the church, then they will have additional certificates to present.
Finally, no one knows, and the Texas Board of Pardons and Paroles won't reveal, how much attention is paid to the information contained in the file that was submitted prior to the last parole consideration. Therefore, it makes sense to update the parole packet and resubmit it for the next vote.
