When to Start A Texas Parole Packet

The best time to start preparing a Texas parole packet is now.  Most of you know that a parole packet or a parole presentation package is a collection of documents and pictures sent to the Texas parole board to help them get to know the potential parolee a little better. This is particularly important in Texas since there is not an interview nor does the offender ever meet with an actual member of the parole board who will be voting. The parole review process for Texas inmates can start asRead More

An Easy Way to Get Good Time Credit and Improve Chances of Texas Parole

Many offenders don't realize it but having a work assignment while incarcerated is not the only way to get good time credit. Another way is to take whatever classes are available through the unit where they are located. Most of the units try to ensure that offenders who enter without a high school diploma take the classes and pass their GED test before they are released on parole. In fact, many paroles are delayed while the offender finishes the classes. However, in addition to the GED, some units offer vocationalRead More

One of the reasons we offer our free e-book, Understanding the Texas Parole Process, is so that anyone who wants to take the time to download it (and there are a lot of people taking advantage of the offer) will at least understand how the process works andRead More


Texas Parole Support Letters Destroyed Without Being Sent to Voting Members

​This story actually broke in late 2013 but I wanted to discuss it a little more here and for a specific reason. It was revealed that due to mistakes by employees of the Texas Board of Pardons and Parole, possibly as many as 86,000 files in their system may have been destroyed along with the support letters and other information which might have supported the parole applications of some prisoners and which could have resulted in their release. While the state tried to correct the mistake by adding employees andRead More

A Suggestion to Help People in Prison

While the main purpose of this website is to help people understand the parole process in Texas and also to educate them about the importance of parole packets, we also try to occasionally offer our insights into life inside prison and what can be done to make it easier on the offenders. We've mentioned before how a few dollars placed into an inmates commissary account can be a big deal and how uplifting "making store" can be, even if they only get a few soups and a soft drink. The prisonsRead More
