Parole Hearings and Applications
In the State of Alabama, the decision to release someone from jail early is done by the Alabama Board of Pardons and Paroles. They have a great deal of discretion in granting or denying prisoners parole.
Generally, individuals can have an attorney apply them for early parole consideration after serving 5 years in Alabama Department of Corrections custody. Those who have medical infirmaries can have earlier parole dates.
Obtaining experienced attorneys can be very important for Parole hearings. Attorneys often have knowledge of the information that the Board is looking for when determining whether parole is appropriate and can help package any information the prisoner has working in their favor in a way that is most persuasive to the board. Counsel can also be a great help when the individual has people who are protesting their release.
Even if the hearing was unsuccessful, an attorney can apply the individual who is seeking parole for another consideration after 18 months from any Parole hearing denial regardless of how long they were set off by the board.
