Is there parole for people who have been convicted of a federal crime?

Back to Miami Criminal Defense Attorney Frequently Asked Questions

Video Transcription

There’s no such thing as parole in the federal system anymore. It doesn’t exist. What happens is people serve their sentences in federal cases. Then shortly before they’re done, if it’s not a sex offense or a violent offense or if they don’t have an extensive criminal history, they’re typically eligible to spend the last six months or so in a halfway house to ease them back into society. They go to a halfway house. They get a job while they’re there. They go back to the halfway house to sleep. They can see their families. It eases them back into society.

Also, almost in every federal case there’s a period of what’s called supervised release that follows the release of a person from a federal sentence. It’s sort of like parole, but it’s not called parole anymore. There are no more parole boards in the federal system. It’s called supervised release. Essentially it’s probation after the completion of a federal sentence. Any parole issues from years ago, we can deal with. For the most part now these are supervised release issues, probation issues, probation violations, supervised release violations. We can help you with all of those as experienced criminal defense lawyers, so call us.
