Hello I am a criminal and prison law solicitor advocate
I may assist today.
So your son is currently in year 15 of a minimum 16 year sentence. Currently at HMP Wakefield. Do you know who your sons sentence plan has gone?
Does he have any outstanding work or courses to complete?
Ok thank you for that.
So I would imagine that the purpose of the hearing at the end of the year would be to consider transfer to open prison prior to possible release.
Due to your son being in a Cat A prison, this is a high security prison, there will be a number of issues to overcome.
First your son would need to show that he can get on in a lower cat prison, then there would be day release, then open conditions with work release, all before actual parole would happen.
I have listed below a link to inside time prison paper. You can find prison legal aid forms listed who can assist. https://insidetime.org/directory/categories/solicitors?category=2&zoom=15&is_mile=1&directory_radius=0&view=grid&filter=1&field_area=Yorkshire+Humberside&field_appeals=&field_compensationclaims=&field_mentalhealthlaw=&field_familychildrenlaw=&field_criminaldefence=&field_immigration=&field_prisonlaw=Parole+Board+Applications
Yes of course.
Few criminal legal aid forms actually deal with prison law, because it is a specialist legal aid area which a separate contract applies.
The Insidetimes will list such experts. They can set up legal aid for your son for the forthcoming Parole board hearing.
Your very welcome.
