My name is ***** ***** I am an experienced criminal
Unfortunately, a parolee
is a convicted offender serving a sentence
. He has lost all of his rights with his felony conviction, except the right to a parole hearing. The US Supreme Court
has held that there is no fundamental right to Parole, and Parole will require that parolees avoid particular people or places which they consider as triggers which may make the parolee reoffend. Compliance with what parole wants is essential to a parolee's continued liberty.
As a result, what you are experiencing is very common. Parole can and does separate parents from children, husbands from wives, and so on. This sort of parole stipulation is routinely upheld by the courts unless it's arbitrary and capricious. That is, parole can't require this of you just because they have the power to do so. They must be able to show a valid reason. The reason usually is that the spouse was a co-defendant on the underlying offense or has a criminal record
Your wife can take this before the Board and if this fails get her lawyer to bring her back before the judge for a ruling, but again, unless the decision on Parole's part is arbitrary and capricious, which would in that case be an abuse of Parole's discretion, judges tend not to disturb Parole's dictates.
I know that this is not what you want to hear and I am very sorry to e the bearer of bad news.
JustAnswer is not a law firm but a general information service. We cannot represent your wife, nor advise you over the phone. Lawyers cannot be retained over this site. We cannot even refer you to a specific Massachusetts lawyer or law firm because it's against the site's terms of service.
What we can do is to direct you to the same legal referral services that lawyers themselves use when they need to find someone out of state or in a different specialty and don't know anyone.
Try the Massachusetts State Bar Association's Lawyer Referral Service. THey charge a fee of about $50 for the referral but it will include a free half hour consultation with the lawyer.
Alternatively, a commercial legal referral service that has been around for a long time and is highly reliable is Martindale.com. Many of Martindale's lawyers are peer and/or client rated, which may make it easy for you to narrow down the field.
