Asked in Criminal Law for Texas

Q: I was wondering what to do or to find out why they changed a release date 4 years difference

My LO was due to be released from prison in the year 2021 now they changed it to 2025 and didn't give him a reason. Why would they change the date and not even tell him they changed it. I saw it and told him about it. He said he needs to get a lawyer to find out why and what to do to get to be released in 2021 instead of 2025.

A: An attorney can look into why that was changed. It could be any number of reasons. There could have been a miscalculation that has been corrected, or he picked up a new case you don't know about and pled to it. An attorney who can look at exactly what his situation could give you a concrete answer.
