Parole Board Representation Lawyers in South Carolina
Depending upon the crime you are convicted of and your prior record, if you are convicted of or plead guilty to a crime in SC, you may become eligible for parole. If you are released on parole by SCPPP, you will be allowed to complete your prison sentence in the community.
Our parole attorneys can represent you in a hearing before the South Carolina Department of Probation, Parole, and Pardon Services (SCDPPPS).
Being properly prepared for your parole hearing is extremely important. What you may not know is that the SCDPPPS staff conduct an investigation into each parole-eligible inmate as long as six months prior to your scheduled hearing. The staff’s results are presented in summary form to the members of the Board who will be present at your parole hearing. Hiring a parole attorney to represent you can help ensure that you are prepared to face and possibly obtain the freedom that you are entitled to.
If you are eligible for Parole, we recommend that you:
- make sure that you do not have any violations in your SCDC file,
- have employment immediately secured upon your release, and
- make sure that you have a stable home environment to return to.
