Default Parole revocation hearing

Heyyy yallll LOL Question my boo is going for a parole revocation hearing then I guess he has to see what the parole board decides. His parole officer is recommending it be reinstated giving the fact he served 3 1/2 years in another state. What are his chances and do anyone know how long it take for the board to make a decision. Anybody been in this situation before. BTW I got a lawyer but he is helpless

I'm not familiar with Alabama's parole policies & procedures, but whether or not he's revoked will be dependent on many factors (criminal history, seriousness of violation etc).

I did find the following on Alabama's Parole Board website, but you may want to read more than just the little part I'm posting from Article 13:

The recommendation of the Hearing Officer to the Board is governed by Alabama’s revocation cap (“dunk”) law: in all cases, excluding those parole violators whose current offense is a violent Class A’s or sex offense as well as for charges for a new arrest or conviction, or absconding, the Parole Court may only recommend and the Board may only impose a 45-day max period of confinement (“dunk”). The hearing officer and the Board are limited to recommending/imposing 3 total “dunks” and may not recommend/impose full revocation until 3 “dunks” have first been imposed. Thus, the Hearing Officer shall recommend to the Board whether the parole violator should be “dunked” (or incarcerated for up to 45 days), fully revoked, or reinstated, as applicable.
