The Consequences of Violating Parole in Madison
In Mississippi, individuals who are sentenced to one year or more of imprisonment may be granted parole – a conditional early release from one’s prison term. While on parole, the person is supervised by the Department of Corrections. When parolees break any of the rules that have been imposed on them, they are in violation of their parole.
There are several ways in which a person may violate the terms of their parole. Common examples include refusing a drug test, failing to report to a parole officer, or failing to appear for a court date. Such violations can result in serious consequences that are determined by the type of offense and the decision of the parole officer.
The potential punishments for a parole violation include:
- A verbal warning
- Increased reporting requirements
- Alcohol or drug treatment
- Short-term imprisonment
- Additional drug and alcohol testing
- Revocation of probation
Convicted for a Crime While on Parole
Committing a new offense while on parole can result in the most serious penalty – parole revocation. That means the individual would return to prison to serve the original sentence in addition to the time imposed for the new conviction.
The decision for parole revocation depends on the offense. If the parole officer believes that this is the best action to be taken, the parolee may exercise his right to a parole revocation hearing. If this describes your situation, rely on our Madison post-conviction attorney to represent you.
Parole Violation Hearings
You may have heard that post-conviction cases are often harder to win than criminal trials. This is especially true for parole violation hearings. These trials are based on a preponderance of the evidence, rather than beyond a reasonable doubt. This makes it easier for the opposing side to prove your guilt.
However, winning a parole violation hearing is not impossible. Our knowledgeable criminal defense lawyer is experienced in obtaining successful outcomes for clients facing parole revocation.
There is a range of defenses to employ to discredit the evidence, including:
- False accusation
- Mistaken identity
- Violation of due process rights
- Necessity of violation
- Accidental violation
