co-defendant parole stipulation

Recommended Posts

wife and I arrested in 2013 on marijuana charge - recently paroled, both to halfway houses in Harrisburg, Pa., wife released from half way house recently but i"m not being allowed to live with her because of what they call co-defendant stipulation. My wife has never been arrested in her life, we've been married for 30 years, we have no no but our selves but this is causing a hugh problem. I've exhausted most avenues and now am looking to file civil suit against Pa parole board for "emotional Abuse/distress". Is this possible and can someone point us in the right direction to do this?

What's causing the problem is your criminal activity.  Most folks understand that choosing to become a criminal carries a wide range of consequences.  Paroled criminals such as yourself are subject to various rules, one of which is that you may not associate with other paroled criminals.  You agreed to this when you were released on parole.  Your alternative is to return to prison to complete your sentence.  A lawsuit against the parole board (for "emotional [a]buse/distress" or otherwise) would not be viable.

Hi @maxwell111

 

Welcome to the community and thanks for posting! Sorry to hear about your situation...that sounds really tough. You may want to speak with a local attorney to find out if anything can be done to modify these terms, or if you have a viable lawsuit. If you need help finding an attorney in Harrisburg, you can use our Lawyer Directory.

 

Best of luck!

Actually just left united states district court/middle district of pennsylvania and the judge thought a lawsuit in this realm is very viable, saw merit and even appointed lawyer to represent us. Like oi said we are not criminals w, we made a mistake due to financial problems, a mistake we paid dearly for. As the supreme court suggest "marriage is a fundamental right and segregating us after 30 years of marriage is wrong" all 3we want is to move on with our lives.

Of course you are.  You were convicted of a crime.

Not sure where this quote comes from, but it certainly isn't from anything the Supreme Court wrote.
