When it comes to a sex offender neither is going to be easier. It seems to me that they make it easier to fail than make it. The main difference that I see between probation and parole is that with parole there seems to be less "charges" for things. Good luck.

Can anyone give me any advice as to what to expect at my boyfriend's revocation hearing? Does the IN parole board reinstate offenders often? His offense is failure to report almost 5 years ago. He has not committed any new crimes and before leaving town when he stopped reporting he was doing well on parole. And in the last 2 years he has not been "running". We have a home, he gained legal custody of his son, he goes to school and he has a lots of support. We have a lawyer but I am have never been through any of this so if anyone can offer any insight I would greatly appreciate it!

Omi, I sat through a probation/parole violation hearing with my son. It was a requirement of his probation and he wanted someone there with him. What I saw was that the outcome was firm. Some were revoked and others were given new chances. Part of it was how successful the person was in convincing the judge they were sincere.

In your case he has been "on the run" as they would see if for 5 years. He did check a couple of years or so ago, but they may not be convinced of that. That's the down side.

On the plus side he has done some very good things.

Please let us know how things turn out for you.

Default Condition of Parole question.

Hi,
Does a restraining order violate parole?
My boyfriend just got a restraining order put on him. And he just got out. Will this violate him? Not that he is going to go around the person who filed it, but just the fact that it was filed, will that alone violate him?
Thanks in advance.

I don't know. I would hope not, but the fact that someone put one on him would scare me to death. I would worry that they are a vindictive person who won't care what they do to someone's life. Is there someway he can keep this person from having any knowledge of his where abouts.

Parole Rule #5: Abuse of Alcohol or Controlled Substances- I understand that the following are a violation o fmy parole:
a) Being intoxicated or
b) Using, possessing or trafficking illegally in a controlled substance. Abuse of alcohol or drugs is not a defense for violation of the parole release agreement.


I'm confused what does "is not a defence for violation" mean??? Does it mean they can drink as long as they don't abuse it, like maybe have a beer or two a couple times a week? or does it mean they will be given drug/alcohol screens and will violate if they have a dirty screen??? My boyfriend drank all the time the last time he was on parole, but was never violated for it.

Can you be on parole and probation at the same time if the probation sentence is served before the parole sentence?

My man went in on a probation vio and a new charge. he served the probation violation first and now he is finishing the second sentence and was issued a new cause number. Is he going to be forced to finish his probation or will it be voided due to the fact that hes going to be on parole when he is released?

from what i was told, it means they can drink yes, but obviously they are not to be "drunk" if they are given a piss test. some parole officers will allow alcohol to be consumed if it isnt a large quantity, but some will not tolerate it at all...its something to definitely ask his parole officer or someone that could look his case up.

southsidemomma, the VOP for my space of face book are usually reserved for sex offender parolees. The rules for this type of offense seem to written in the air to be grabbed as needed.
