Being convicted of a crime is a difficult reality to face and to accept. It is likely that the allegations alone caused major disruptions to the defendant's life, and now that he or she is convicted of the crime they were charged with, the penalties must now be endured. But it is important to note that those sentenced to a prison term may not have to remain incarcerated for the entire duration of their sentence.
For some Mississippi residents, it is possible to shorten a prison sentence. A parole hearing is an opportunity to regain your freedom, although, it is not a simple a straightforward process. Because of that, the legal team at Cynthia A. Stewart, P.A., is prepared to help individuals in the Madison area navigate this process, helping them obtain a successful parole hearing.
A parole hearing is an opportunity for a prisoner to be released before his or her sentence has expired. In this process, the individual will sit in front of a panel of judges where they will then determine if, based on good behavior, a prisoner has met the requirements for early release.
Going through this process can be extremely nerve wrecking; however, we diligently work to build up a case for our clients, helping them prove that their good behavior entitles them to early release. With years of experience, we have helped countless clients obtain favorable results in a parole hearing. And even in the case that parole is not approved; we are prepared to fight for our clients the next time the opportunity arises.
