Parolee Rights Manual
FOR USE BY CALIFORNIA PRISONERS
Your Responsibility When Using the Information
Provided in the Parolee Rights Manual:
When we wrote
this Informational Material we did our best to give you useful and
accurate information because we know that prisoners and their
families and advocates often have difficulty obtaining legal
information and we cannot provide specific advice to all who request
it. The laws change frequently and are subject to differing
interpretations. We do not always have the resources to make changes
to this material every time the law changes.
The parole manual was origionally published in 1990 by the State
Bar's Standing Committee on Legal Services for Prisoners, Legal
Services Section, and was most recently updated by the Prison Law
Office in November 2002. If you want legal advice backed by a
guarantee, try to hire a lawyer to address your specific problem. It
is your responsibility to make sure that the information contained
in this booklet has not changed and is applicable to your situation.
Most of the materials you need should be available in the public law
library. Prisoners should also be able to find these materials in
the prison law libraries.
