Answer: The answer is sometimes.
You generally can’t just call the Board and say you want to talk to a specific Board member. That’s not the way it works. Generally, the lawyers will facilitate a process where a family member or friend can be contacted by the Board. I’ve done this in a number of cases where the Board was interested in talking to the wife or husband of an inmate. They were furnished with that person’s name and phone number through the attorney, and the Board members called them and talked to them about the case.
Normally, the Board does not do that. An experienced attorney will know how to balance between too much information for the Board to review versus helpful information and documents that should be included for positive consideration in the light most favorable to the inmate. Every case has different circumstances and an experienced parole lawyer will be able to analyze the facts and determine the best approach.
