Because he hasn't had a court appointed lawyer assign to him yet
1 Answer from Attorneys
If he is indigent, a lawyer will be appointed. If he is not indigent, a lawyer will not be appointed. If you want a lawyer to represent him at the parole hearing, he will need to hire one.
If he gets convicted of the new felony (PCS) and / or the family violence charge, there is a great possibility that his parole will be revoked - especially because it is highly unlikely that he would receive probation on either of the new charges.
