If someone was convicted of murder in Georgia and received a life sentence and have now served 14 years, what do they need to do to receive a parole hearing? Would having a lawyer help and what type of lawyer?

It depends on if it was simply a life sentence or a life sentence without the possibility of parole. It also depends upon the defendant's disciplinary record while in custody. I cannot really advise you correctly without knowing more about the case.

Having a lawyer can help in this situation. You would be looking for a criminal attorney with experience before the GA State Board of Pardons and Parole.

Please contact me to discuss the matter further.
