Hey how are you
I am fine. Thank youWith at Tentative Parole Month - that is just what it means "Tentative" possible - set for then but could be sooner and could be later. I suggest that your son's case manager can see if there are any problems that the Parole Board needs cleared up
Have you tried talking to the case manager?
Your son's case manager in the prison that is?
Its a situation where they are so of the "whatever" side of life. His original one had cancer and since left the prison. I have talked to everyone and they give me nothing just saying that it is out of their hands and they have done everything they are supposed to do. They are unwilling to step up in any way!
You are correct in that Parole is very closed lipped. And when they make a decision, it is difficult for them to rescind unless there is some grave error of law -
And so I suggest, you can only practice a little more patience at this time
Most parole boards do not encounter any grave errors
and as such their word and their documents are to be trusted
It is not yet, March
And while others are leaving earlier than the TPM
His TPM is Feb
That does not mean they all are.
Aww I see.
Its just one of those things where he can see people going home that have a later TPM and hes just there
Well if February comes and goes, then I suggest you contact the Board again
And in writing and request an appointment to speak directly with them
would that be possible for you to have a face to face meeting?
And when I call trying, they all act like its no big deal to say hey this kid has done EVERYTHING asked.
In GA you cant go down there anymore like before. They only meet with public Jan and July
You have a couple more days in February
Oh. I see
Thank you for that information
I suggest he just needs to be patient
I feel like I could be a parole person at this point all that I have went through
Not get in any trouble
I bet you know alot
He had some DR's early in his sentence but nothing since 2008
he has done all classed and even has 12 PIC Credits
Its just a few more days he needs to wait it out.
I just feel like he is being over looked and I cant seem to figure it out
I doubt that is the case
You are in Maryland?
They have him on the radar
Yes, I am in MD
So when the end of Feb comes and still nothing I just do the same circle?
Most of today, I was in VA, however
That is all you can do. Remember Parole is not a right
Oh wow! Working on a case?
It is a privilege
And so with that in mind, offenders are at the mercy of the Board
Yes I have learned that, however Im just beside myself in how people it a job in the system and cant undertand the value they have
and the Prison.
Oh they understand it. But they like Power
Its about the control and power
They forget it is a responsibility
That crazy to me. Its sad is what it is.
So basically nothing I can do just wait and pray
Yes. I agree. But it is that way and patience is the biggest friend you have
Should I hire a lawyer? Can they do anything?
No. I doubt a lawyer can help you
The Board has set a month date to be released
That is the best you can have to hope right now
That a local lawyer cannot help you with parole matters?
The Board has a mind of its own
ok I understand
And they cannot do for one because they have a lawyer. Parole must not be prejudice towards those who have money to hire an attorney
I wish it was better news for you right now. But you have a few days and he will be home
True and I understand that. I just want to know what the hold up is. Thats all just being a mother
You will never that.
There is no way for you to ever know that
Unless your son has done something to get an infraction and that is the hold up
No sure. The prison even said that he has been a model inmate
Then you would be told about that by the prison officials if you asked
There you go.
You just need to keep the faith and be patient
I did and they said no that he has done everything. So i guess Ill just wait
Good. Try to relax. It will happen. He will be home
