Violating Parole Requirements

In Texas, parole violations are taken very seriously. Those who have been granted parole have to be careful not to violate the terms assigned, or they could end up with more jail time. Your parole officer should make the requirements and restrictions of your parole clear to you. However, if you are facing a parole violation, legal help may be beneficial.

Sometimes mistakes are made while on parole, and a lawyer may be able to help you stay out of jail by arguing your case before a judge. The lawyers at Alexander & Associates are experienced criminal defense lawyers and will fight to keep their clients out of jail. Our goal is to help our clients understand their parole violations and how to avoid further trouble.

Types of Parole Violations

Parole violations are classified under two different categories. Those on parole should be aware that the following constitute parole violations:

Administrative/ Technical Violations:

  • Failure to get permission to change home address before moving
  • Failure to pay a fee
  • Testing positive for drugs
  • Failure to meet with parole officer

Crime Violations:

  • Charged with another crime while on parole
  • Speeding tickets may count as a violation

Those who have been charged with a parole violation may wish to seek legal guidance to ensure that they do not go back to jail. Sometimes mistakes happen while on parole, and the last thing you want to do is go to jail because of a technical error.
