Texas Parole Attorney

Fighting to Reunite Families Throughout Texas


Making the Most of Your Time in Texas Jail

For Texas inmates, refusing to participate in prison activities and simply waiting out your time almost surely guarantees that you serve your entire sentence. Parole panel members examine an inmate's activities during incarceration to identify signs of genuine rehabilitation and indications that the inmate has a reasonable chance of successfully reintegrating into society. An inmate's reentry program, therefore, should begin on the first day he or she is committed to prison. At the Law Office of Kevin Stouwie, we work with Texas inmates and their families to begin building strong cases for parole release. We can analyze an inmate's history and situation to determine what available prison programs would most meaningfully contribute to his or her probability of early release on parole and chances of success after a release.

Components of a Successful Reintegration Plan

A comprehensive reentry plan must address the underlying causes that led to an inmate's arrest and subsequent incarceration in order to increase his or her chance of winning parole release:

  • DRUG INTERVENTION - Drug addiction is a frequent catalyst for criminal conduct. Parole panel members closely examine inmates with a history of drug use to see if they took advantage of drug intervention programs during their periods of incarceration. While a substance abuse history can place a hurdle in the way of gaining parole, with proper counseling it is not insurmountable. 

  • ANGER MANAGEMENT - Inmates convicted of crimes involving violent outbursts, such as assaults or reckless endangerment, must convince the parole panel they have developed the impulse control necessary to refrain from similar conduct up on release. Participating in anger management programs while in prisons can help convince panel members of the inmate's ability to change.

  • PSYCHIATRIC COUNSELING - Underlying psychiatric conditions can contribute to criminal conduct, even if they do not reach the severity of being completely disabling. Various Texas corrections facilities offer programs to treat conditions such as anxiety, depression, low self-esteem, and impulse behavior.

  • CAREER AND EDUCATIONAL DEVELOPMENT - Poverty and joblessness are perhaps the most prevalent underlying causes of incarceration. Inmates with limited education and skills face a bleak job market upon release and, as a result, a higher likelihood of recidivism. A post-parole plan for employment or education, bolstered by in-custody training programs, is, therefore, often an essential component of a successful parole bid.

Attorney Kevin Stouwie chooses to focus his law practice on representing Texas prison inmates seeking early release through parole because he believes people can learn from past mistakes and society as a whole benefits when former inmates receive opportunities to build new lives.
