    You need the advice of an attorney who specializes in Parole law. There are many fine attorneys who could guide you in the process. Call Bill Habern's office at 936-435-1380 (you can look him or his firm online) or another parole attrorney. Trial attorneys would not usually be your best resource for information on parole since we are focusing our efforts on keeping them out of prison or jail. Hope this helps...........

    It all depends upon where the person is serving their time. In Texas, they must serve a certain percentage of their sentence before being eligible for parole but good time can factor in as well but their "good time" can also be taken away. This is a specialty in the law, especially in Texas, so my advice would be to consult a person that specializes in parole law. Hope that helps.
