When Should You Start Preparing Your Texas Parole Packet

For some reason, many people believe they should wait until the inmate is up for review before preparing the parole packet. This is absolutely incorrect! The Parole Board can receive the inmate's file and vote on parole as much as 60 days prior to the actual eligibility date. If a vote has taken place then the board members do not review the new materials. This is why it is important to begin work on the Texas parole packet early, as much as six months to a year before the parole eligibility date. IfRead More

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

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

Mother’s Day in Prison

Spending Mother's Day in prison is pretty tough on both the woman inside the prison as well as the kids on the outside. We urge you to go and visit someone on Mother's Day not only to keep her spirits up but also for the benefit of the children and to keep the family unit together as much as possible.   There are 11,993 females incarcerated in Texas prisons.  While every mother that is inside wants nothing more than to be out, if that's not possible then the next thing theyRead More
