Hire a Criminal Defence Lawyer for Parole Hearings in Toronto
Parole hearings are distinct from bail hearings, although similarities do exist. Unlike bail hearings, parole hearings happen before a parole board. Those convicted of criminal offenses usually become eligible to apply for parole once one third of their jail sentence has been served. Different rules apply for those serving life sentences.
If you are scheduled to appear for a hearing before a Parole Board, it is in your best interests to have qualified legal representation. The board will assess whether or not you are fit to re-enter society; they need to know that you will be able to integrate, and that you are not a threat to the general public.
Erickson Law can help you with any of the following parole services:
– Temporary Absence
– Day Parole
– Full Parole
– Statutory Release
– Appeal hearings
Whatever type of release you require, John Erickson can walk you through the process and advocate on your behalf, giving you the support you need to be at your best during your parole hearing. Don’t let nerves, intimidation, or fear of the unknown hinder your opportunity to reenter society. Additionally, if you have been turned down for parole, John Erickson can help you exercise your right to appeal. Call (416) 363-3612 for help with your Parole Board meeting, to hire an appeals lawyer in Toronto today!
Parole Violation – Get Help at Erickson Law
If you have violated the conditions set by your probation officer or the criminal court in Canada, you can be charged with parole violation. Minor probation violations are typically decided by your parole officer, while criminal offences will be assessed by a judge. In either case, parole violations put your freedom at risk, and can also add length and restrictions to your existing parole conditions if you are not sent back to jail outright.
If you are facing parole violation charges, it is critical that you hire a criminal defence lawyer to present your case tactfully to the courts and avoid further penalties. An experienced criminal defence lawyer can even help your charges be dismissed entirely.
Erickson Law has 20+ years of experience in parole violation situations, and our probation lawyers in Toronto can keep you out of jail and on track with your parole conditions. Call (416) 363-3612 today to book a free consultation.
