Default Parole release question-how does the process work?

Hi i have a question...does anyone know how the parole release process works? (hope i'm making sense)

1. Does he have to have a specific address where he has to parole to? (Example: parents/wife) and does he have to stay there at that residence when he is released? if yes what will happen if he leaves/goes elsewhere without telling the parole officer?
2. Does he have to maintain a job? if yes then what will happen if he looses the job or gets fired does the employer call the parole officer?
3. Does the parole officer verify residence/job/etc before he gets released?
4. What happens if he is around others who are in trouble with the law? (Example: ppl on probation/parole)

1) Yes, it has to be a specific address and the person who lives there has to be willing to "sponsor" the Offender to reside with them.
2) Yes, unless there is some type of disability, employment is required. If the Offender loses the job or is terminated, they must inform their Officer immediately.
3) Yes, the address must be proven to be a valid one.
4) Generally, associating with others who are on supervision is frowned upon. The only exception is marriage or very close family. Although both of those can be rescinded if they they get the Offender into trouble. If the Offender associates with those on supervision, the results can be any thing from a slight butt-chewing to arrest.

When the inmate is released how long does he have to report to the parol officer they assign him? IS he allowed to parol to a different city than the one he used to live at??

Usual directions for reporting are within 24 hours, but I would recommend immediately and in the morning, unless it's a holiday.
Provided someone in the city where the Offender wants to live is willing to sponsor them, they can live there. Provided, of course, it's the same state. A different state will lead to what's called an Interstate Compact Transfer.

He could have gotten the award of some good time, a miscalculation or maybe a misconduct violation, which took away some good time, was removed from his record.

Thanks for the info...extremely helpful. On Monday someone is coming to my house to verify the address and interview me (I guess). If all goes well, does this mean he might be coming home? How soon after Monday can he be released to our home? Sorry if you have to repeat yourself. Thanks so much!

He could be getting released (based on the interview with you) or he could stay in. The residence check-out isn't a certainty of parole.
If the residence is clear and if he's authorized for parole, then there could be a delay from anywhere between 3-8 weeks, or even longer. He will know more on the release date from the info he gets from his case worker.

If the Officer said 6 weeks, go with that. If they give a clear and definitive number like that, then they've got some good info.

Let me ask a question. If my husband got a FR-6 and the program that he is attending is 6 month why they can't give him a date at to when he will be release. The only thing I get when I call the inmate information line is he will not be release before Feb 2010.

If the not before date is Feb 2010 then he won't be released before that date. If he finishes the class they have given him in say Nov. or Dec. he still won't be home until Feb. It seems they could free up more beds if they released them at the end of their program but that is just how TX does things! Come on FEB!

What people need to understand about parole is that one is still serving their sentence, just living in a different location. You DO NOT have the same rights and freedoms as other citizens.

There are different requirements for different people. Mine was very strict and I could not even leave the house to go to the grocery store without advance permission. in fact, that is what led to me being violated and returned to prison. I really didn't mind too much, because I had no freedom anyway, so it was all just prison to me.

Not all paroles are that strict. You need to go over your conditions of parole very carefully and understand that they mean business. If there is a question, ask your supervising officer before acting. Yes, taking an out of town trip or changing addresses is one way people get violated.
