how long does it take to find out parole board decision? (TX)
My boyfriend is in Wichita county (TX) detention center and he for his parole hearing back in January (the 28th to be exact)
He said last night something about the board having to give a decision by tomorrow because it would be his "30th waiting day"
I'm assuming that he's counting just m-f
My question is: Is he correct on this? Could we be finding out what their decision is tomorrow? Or not?
His options is either them reinstating his parole or him being sent to ISF. (he is in county for a parole violation)
If he has no new offense (only an administrative violation of parole) then they normally have 41 days after his arrest to dispose of the charges. I do not know if that includes weekends or only weekdays. I am not aware of any consequence to the parole board if they do not render the decision by then but if they are compelled to continue his parole if they miss the deadline (there is certainly nothing explicitly stated in the statute to that effect) then it would probably take a lawyer to hold them to it.
Oh. Here is a link to the statue if anyone cares to read it. It's not exacty easy on the eyes.
