When Your Rights Are in Jeopardy
When someone gets placed on probation, the court requires that they follow certain rules and not violate any laws. If they violate the terms of probation (probation violation), they can be arrested and held to answer to the court for the violation. The court can then continue the probation, amend its terms with additional conditions, or revoke it and execute a sentence.
When you are faced with a probation violation, do not simply go to court and admit the violation. If you do that, you have almost no assurance of what will happen to you, and you could be sent to jail or prison. Instead, hire an attorney to represent you on your probation violation. We have experience talking to all of the interested parties – your probation officer, the prosecuting attorney, and, most importantly, the court.
