Parole Violations

Criminal Defense Attorney in Mesa, Arizona

Convicts who display good behavior while in prison and seem to generally want to reform their ways away from criminal lifestyles may be granted parole, or an early release from imprisonment that hinges on maintaining that same good behavior. People on parole that forget the conditions of their early release could find themselves in violation of it, and potentially back to prison before they know what to do. If you are accused of violating your parole conditions, Naegle & Crider can step in and help you figure out what to do to protect your freedom.

Upholding the Terms of Your Parole

Before you can be approved for parole, the Department of Corrections will need to evaluate your behavior and actions while you were in prison. The conditions for any parole you are granted will be reflective, to some extent, of your original prison sentence or conviction. If you do not uphold each and every term of your parole, you may be sent back to prison to complete your sentencing, and perhaps more. Parole is akin to probation in both typical conditions and penalties if violated.

Parole may include the following conditions to be considered valid:

  • Attending any mandated court appearances
  • Completing all other conviction sentences not related to imprisonment
  • Obeying all laws – being arrested, not charged, may be enough to violate parole
  • Only using alcohol or legal recreational drugs within moderation

Parole will also often ban you from visiting certain people or going to specific places. Any such restriction will be related to your conviction. For example, if you were arrested and charged alongside another person who was also convicted, the two of you might not be able to meet or communicate as long as either one of you are on parole.
