Parole vs. Probation

While parole and probation may seem similar on the surface, there are several differences between the two processes. Parole refers to the process of releasing a prisoner (either temporarily for special circumstances or permanently) prior to completing their sentence following good behavior. Probation is granted to those convicted of a “low-risk” criminal offense as an alternative to serving time in prison. Those who complete their probation period without any violations can avoid imprisonment altogether.

What Is Considered a Parole or Probation Violation in NJ?

The law defines parole/probation violations as breaking the rules signed when paroled from prison or given probation. Those on parole or probation can be held without bail. They can be sent back to prison for violations as simple as the following:

  • Failing to report for monthly visits as required;
  • Failing to pay fines;
  • Moving to a new location without permission or notification;
  • Not attending required classes or programs;
  • Testing positive for drugs;
  • Not being at home at curfew time; and
  • Additional arrests.

Any of these violations can lead to extended prison sentences and increased financial costs. If you are facing parole/probation violations, a New Jersey parole violation attorney at Helmer, Conley & Kasselman, P.A. can help. With over 120 years of criminal litigation experience, we know the strengths and weaknesses of our adversaries and their cases. We will fight to uphold your rights.

Obtaining Parole

After serving your parole ineligibility period, you are eligible for release. This means that you could serve only a fraction of your sentence. We can help you appear at your best at your parole hearing. Although attorneys cannot attend the hearing, we can help by doing the following:

  • Obtaining letters of support;
  • Coaching you; and
  • Sending helpful information to the parole board.
