The Difference Between Texas Probation and Texas Parole
To understand the difference between probation and parole you only have to remember probation is only possible before someone is sentenced to actual prison time. After that, parole is the process whereby someone is released from actual incarceration.
Different Methods of Preparing for Parole and Preparing a Texas Parole Packet
A good parole packet can mean the difference between being approved for parole and being denied and having to spend additional months, or even years, in prison. While no method guarantees success these offer the best chances.
The Effect of Concurrent and Consecutive Sentences on Texas Paroles
When Texas judges impose multiple sentences after conviction for multiple crimes they often have a choice on whether the sentences all run at the same time, known as concurrent, or whether the sentences are to run one after another, known as consecutive or stacked. How the judge orders the sentences to be served as well as which sentence is imposed first can make a dramatic difference in how long a prisoner has to wait to be eligible for parole.
