My brother was convicted of attempted capital murder
in 2003. He was given 25 years, and has currently served 13.5 years. He was denied parole twice even though he has been a model inmate. Is there a certain number of years for this offense that he must serve before he can be granted parole? I know he had to serve half of his sentence
, but is there an actual number the parole board
is really looking for? He is in Texas.
JA: Since parole regulations vary, can you tell me what state this is in?
JA: Have you talked to a lawyer yet?
Customer: yes, she was absolutely worthless. Biggest waste of $2500.
JA: What advice did they give you?
Customer: She didn't give any, whatsoever. We spoke to her once in 9 months and that was literally 5 minutes before the parole hearing.
JA: Anything else you think the lawyer should know?
Customer: There is plenty she needs to know because she had the majority of the facts from the incident incorrect.
