Writing a parole letter in Alabama
 
M fiance is coming up for poarle soon and I am trying to write a letter to the parole board so can anyone tell me who do I write the letter to on the parole board and what do I say?

There is a template in this section that states all you need to know about writing to the parole board. FYI they will get it faster if you email the letter to them.

I couldnt find the template either :confused: but maybe this will help :)

As with any professional correspondence, your support letter should either be on letterhead. The letterhead should include all of your contact information including your name, address, phone number(s) and email address if applicable.

The next item in your support letter should be the date, which should be typed in the top left corner below your letterhead. Include an address block with the information of the inmate you are writing regarding. Next, include the address of the Parole Board to whom you are writing.

If you know a specific name of someone on the prison's Parole Board, you may address them. Otherwise, begin your support letter with "Dear Honorable Members of the Parole Board" followed by a colon (:). In your first paragraph, include your name, age, occupation (if you have been employed in the same field for some time, note that in your first paragraph) and relationship with the inmate.
In your second paragraph, describe why you believe the inmate in your opinion deserves the chance for Parole. Tell about improvements the inmate has made since being incarcerated such as education and treatment http://ads.associatedcontent.com/www...&cb=6bc09cb51b

Discuss their positive attitude and feelings of responsibility and remorse.

Finish your support letter by telling the Parole Board how you will support the inmate once they are granted Parole. Your support might be financial, such as a place to live, use of a vehicle, or help finding job offers. Your support of the paroled inmate can also be emotional such as accountability, advice and encouragement.

Once you have completed your support letter, sign it and make copies. Send the original to the Parole Board that oversees the prison where your loved one is incarcerated. Send a copy to your loved one, and keep one to use in a Parole Packet.

It should be located in the site. As for his classification officer he has to put in a request to see them in classification.

They told me Alabama is 6 months behind on paperwork. My man was suppose to be out in September. Is there anything I can do? Or do we just wait it out?

Hi Nia, I know this is 4 years later, but did you write your parole letter? Did it work? Did you get a response? Thanks in advance for any feedback!
