Understanding how a parole hearing works

As a previous post discussed, there are opportunities for Mississippi defendants convicted of certain crimes to reduce the penalties associated with the crime they were convicted of. A parole hearing opens up the possibility for early release, helping him or her reenter society, obtain employment and interact with their friends, family and community once again. While there are many benefits to obtaining parole, it is important to note that getting a parole hearing is not always easy and neither is obtaining a favorable decision.

Preparing you for your parole hearing

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.
