How can a parolee violator be given more time than maximum when no new charges have occurred? Rape 2nd youthful offender
Expert's Assistant chat
Customer: How can a parolee violator be given more time than maximum when no new charges have occurred?
JA: What are the exact charges? Is this a federal or state case?
Customer: Rape 2nd youthful offender in Steuben county, my.
JA: Where did this occur? Sentencing laws vary by state.
Customer: New York
JA: Is there anything else the Lawyer should know before I connect you? Rest assured that they'll be able to help you.
Customer: His appointed attorney told him he's being offered 14 months when he has between 12 and 13 month. I am concerned that the parole officer is abusing her authority. Violating him on technical violations that are not true.

Just to be clear, is this person on parole or probation?

Customer
Parole. This is his second violation.

Understood. Typically, minor technical parole violations are no longer being enforced in NY. It sounds like you might be correct that this parole officer is being unusually aggressive. Depending on the facts, it is possible to add more time for a parole violation, but it is not usual.

If you believe the assigned attorney is not providing the best possible help with this (which may the the case here) the you should consider hiring a new attorney to assist with this.

You can find local attorneys for free by doing a search for your zip code and filtering for criminal defense attorneys here:

www.martindale.com

You can see reviews from past clients, as well as peer reviews, for each law firm or attorney. You should contact at least 4-5 different members of this list (or more, if possible) in order to find someone who you feel confident representing you, and that you feel like you could build a comfortable and positive professional relationship with (attorneys can be very different from one office to the next, so, once again, make sure to contact as many as possible in order to find the right one for you).

Be sure to get a free consultation from any of the attorneys on this list that you speak with - if any of them try to ask you to pay to simply describe your case during an initial consultation, then you probably do not want to work with them.

Keep in mind that you can always negotiate the hourly rate of most attorneys. if necessary.

I sincerely ***** ***** all the best with this. If there is any way I can provide better service, please let me know and I will be happy to help.
