We represent individuals who are facing parole hearings with the Georgia State Board of Pardons and Paroles.
When it comes to parole consideration in Georgia, there are a few things that every person in prison should know.
First, everyone serving a felony sentence will be considered for parole at least once during their incarceration. Second, they will be reviewed by the Parole Board, regardless of whether or not the petitioner is represented by an attorney. Lastly, the Parole Board’s review will be limited to the information that is included in their file - the person being considered will not have the ability to speak to Parole Board members before they decide whether or not to grant parole.
Unfortunately, the files reviewed by the Parole Board typically only include information that is shared by law enforcement, prosecutors, the court, victims and the Georgia Department of Corrections. In many cases, this information does not shine a favorable light on the individual seeking parole.
