Dublin Parole Hearings Defense Attorney
California Parole Board Hearing Laws & Process
- Probation - If you are put on probation, there are rules that must be followed. Our firm provides representation for your initial case and advocates for probation instead of incarceration, but if you have been granted probation, we also handle any situations where a probation violation may have been committed.
- Parole - Our firm can represent you at parole hearings, along with handling any parole violation issues.
- Lifer Hearings - Individuals sentenced to life with the possibility for parole receive "suitability hearings" by the Board of Parole Hearings once the individual reaches the minimum parole eligibility dates. If parole is denied, the parole board must indicate the reasons for refusing parole to an inmate.
The Dannenberg court noted when the Board of Prison Term bases a finding that an inmate is unsuitable for parole on the circumstances of the commitment offense, it must cite some evidence of aggravating facts beyond the minimum elements of the crime. Our firm provides experienced representation for clients at these so-called lifer hearings.
