Parolee Rights related Questions

Do all parolees have the same rights?

Parolee rights may be different in different parts of United States and may cover a variety of aspects. The nature of the crime, previous convictions and many other factors can influence a parolee's rights. It is important for parolees to know what their parolee rights are in order to make sure that they are not doing anything wrong and are able to take the right action in case they have been charged with a violation. Given below are common questions about parolee answered by the Experts.

Should a parolee pay their parole officer a fee?

In some states within the United States, a parolee may pay the parole officer a probation fee to compensate for any services that the parole officer may have provided.

Does a parolee have a right to change his/her parole officer?

A parolee may request for his/her parole officer to be changed if he/she thinks that the officer is violating their rights. However, the parole board is not under any obligation to accept the parolee’s request and the decision on whether to grant the request is at the board's discretion. If the parolee is able to provide enough proof to back his/her request, he/she may be able to succeed in convincing the board to change the parole officer.

Can a parolee live with his/her fiancé in spite of a past order of protection?

A parolee would typically not have the right to live with his/her fiancé if there is a past order of protection unless the order was subsequently cancelled. If the parolee and his/her fiancé want the order to be cancelled, the parolee’s fiancé may request a revocation of the order in the court that granted the order. He/she may have to explain why the order needs to be revoked. However, the decision is at the judge's discretion and there is no obligation on the judge to revoke the protection order.

Can a parolee request to move out of state to live with their parents while still on parole?

The parolee may request the parole board to allow this individual to move out of state and live with their parents. However, if this right is not granted to the parolee, and they still move out of the state, then the parole can get cancelled and the individual may have to return to jail.

Can a parolee live with someone who owns a gun?

A parolee may be allowed to live with someone who owns a gun. However, in some situations and depending on the crime, this can go against the parolee because it may be considered that the parolee would have easy access to the gun.

Can a parolee take narcotic drugs prescribed by a doctor?

A parolee may be able to take narcotic drugs that are prescribed by a doctor if the parolee does not violate the law when getting the prescription from the doctor and if the parolee is not serving parole for a drug related conviction. If the parolee is on parole for a drug based conviction, then the parolee would typically not be able to take any kind of narcotic drugs without the permission from the court.

Would it be a violation of a parolee’s right to privacy if a parole officer takes drug tests in a public place?

This may not be considered a violation of a parolee’s right to privacy and a parole officer has the right to take random drug tests. The parolee could be required to take the drug test at any place and at any time, especially if the parolee is on parole following a drug related conviction.

If you or someone known to you is on parole, then it is important be aware of all the rights and limitations on a parolee. This would help you make sure you are not doing anything wrong when on parole. Having knowledge about a parolee's rights will also help you if you are accused of parole violation. You can ask an Expert if you want more information about parolee rights.

    California parolee questions
    My nephew (age 30) has been in and out of the california prison system since he was 18 for drug offenses and his last parole violation was for possession of a gun. He is out now and demanding access to our real property in which he has a 1/6 ownership. Can the other owners ban him from the property? How do we know his rights? The parole office says everything is confidential. I have been told to tell him there are guns and prescription drugs on the property and it would violate his parole to be there. Is our only way to deal with him to call the police every time we think he is violating the safety and security of us and our possessions?
