Can I Appeal a Denial of Parole?

This is a bit of a tricky question in Texas.  When parole has been denied, the offender  can certainly send a Request for Reconsideration but, realistically, unless the Parole Board did something like consider evidence that wasn't a part of the file (ex. make their decision based on the wrong file) then it isn't likely to be granted.

First Days in the Texas Prison System – Part 1

To those people who have never been in prison or talked with someone who has been there (on the other side of the plexiglass), we thought we would offer a little insight into what happens from the time the prisoner is picked up at the county jail.
