Swain & Co Prison Law Solicitors | Recall Reviews & Oral Hearings
We fight for your rights
Post release, the Prison Law team are able to assist in relation to recall matters. When a prisoner is recalled, their licence is revoked. All types of sentenced offenders will be subject to a recall if they do not comply with the licence conditions in place.
What happen when you get recalled to prison?
If an offender is returned to prison, depending on the circumstances, the recall review will be referred to the parole board, where they will decide how your case progresses. Prisoners are able to make representations which will help the Parole Board decide whether a prisoner should remain in jail, be released, or the case should be forwarded to an oral hearing.
How Can We Help?
This is where Swain & Co come in, we can submit representations on your behalf in relation to the reasons for any recall and any mitigation which may be provided. The parole board can either refuse your re-release on the papers until the next annual recall review, defer the review for want of further investigation, or direct the case to a hearing. We are able to represent you and provide advocacy and assistance at these oral hearings.
We have a large proportion of repeat clients as clients repeatedly return to us when recalled having previously been successful in having them released.
