Question Wife picked up on blue warrant. Need suggestions to help.

After doing 10 years in Texas, my wife was sent to a transitional house, but walked out. She was picked up at home here on a blue warrant this past Friday, (four years later). She had not gotten into any trouble after she walked out. She will be going before the board within 30 days. Any suggestions on what I can do to help? I am assuming that letters of recommendation will help. Thanks.

There was a member here recently that hired an attorney for representation before the board on a parole revocation. Parole was reinstated in that case and she felt that the attorney really helped. However, each case is different and there can never be any guarantee of how things will go. Writing letters is certainly something you can do and, of course, she can speak for herself at the hearing and maybe, if she needs it, you could help her with what she might say.

Hi, I'm the one whose husband was recently reinstated (vote made Oct. 16) and released from jail (TODAY!!). At the hearing, he was represented by Attny. Scott Pawgan...our experience with Mr. Pawgan confirmed the good reference that CenTexLyn (who knows the system inside out) gave him when I asked her for help. He did a good job, and it might be worth it for you to phone the Habern, O'Neil, and Pawgan firm for a consultation, to see if they may be able to help.
The more information you can get before the hearing, the better off you are...one piece of generic advice for blue warrant recipients: NEVER waive your right to a preliminary hearing, NO MATTER WHAT the parole officer says. I hear they sometimes try to save time and paperwork by getting people to accept an offer, and often these are phony offers.
