Parole Lawyer Hal Walker

In years 2014-2016 we were successful nearly 70 percent of the time that we represented inmates at parole hearings.  It is important to realize that these numbers are based upon our efforts AND those of the inmate.  Many of our clients last year had received many certificates and completed many programs while staying out of trouble.  We do not believe that these results are based solely upon our efforts and these results can’t be guaranteed or promised as future results.

Parole Board lawyers are not all created equal.  Some have a great amount of experience and some are just now learning their trade.  When interviewing attorneys, make sure to ask a great deal of questions and make sure you are comfortable with them prior to sending any money.  Our fees are currently highly competitive with other lawyers with similar experience.  Contact us for more information on our fees.  These are flat fees and will not change once you have retained us to represent your loved one.

For information on the Process and scheduling see the Alabama Paroles Website.

AN OVERVIEW OF PAROLE IN ALABAMA

Inmates are not transported or heard at their parole hearings.  An inmate will typically come up for parole in Alabama after serving at least one third of their sentence or ten years, which ever is less.  If the inmate comes up for parole under these circumstances, it only takes two of the three board members to vote to release the inmate for them to be released.  It is important to note though, that there are other rules which allow for an earlier parole if all three vote in the affirmative.

Alabama Parole Consideration

Inmates convicted of certain Class A felonies will not be reviewed prior to serving eighty-five (85%) of their total sentence or fifteen (15) years, whichever is less.  Those felonies included in this list include, Rape I, Murder, Kidnapping I, Attempted Murder, Sodomy I, Sexual Torture, and Robbery I, Burglary I, and Arson I, when there is serious physical injury.

For more information, See Article One, Section 7 of the Rules of the Alabama Board of Pardons and Paroles.

Early Parole Consideration

In late 2018 business at the Parole Board changed quite a bit after an inmate was released and took the lives of three people.  Many questioned if Jimmy Spencer should have been released.  As a result, the Governor and Attorney General, accompanied by several District Attorneys demanded changes at the Parole Board.  This resulted in a new Director, Charlie Graddick and new Parole Board members.  After an inmate has served at least five (5) years, he or she can request a review by the Board, actually the Special Review Committee, to see their progress and to consider them for early release.  In order to be considered an Inmate must submit evidence showing completion of a “major” programs such as Substance Abuse Program or Crime Bill, a letter of recommendation from the sentencing Judge or case Prosecutor, and be disciplinary free for the last 12 months and having zero disciplinary actions involving violence.  This can be requested once every 12 months.  Early consideration may be granted only for good cause and circumstances bearing on the inmates probability to succeed on parole.  Chances of being granted an earlier parole date are slim.
