If you are on probation and facing an allegation that you have violated your probation, you need the assistance of a skilled criminal defense attorney now.
Probation Violations / Revocations
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.
If 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. We will work to obtain a favorable disposition on your probation violation and get your probation continued. There are many alternatives to simply revoking probation and sending someone to prison. Let us find one in your case. Call us today for a free case evaluation.
Early Termination of Probation
Have you been on probation for a while and kept your promise to the court? If so, you may be a good candidate to get off probation early. Courts have the power to let a defendant off probation early in the appropriate circumstances. Probation, although obviously a better alternative to jail time, is still a difficult task. Meetings with probation officers, community service, restitution payments, and other court-ordered programs can take up a significant amount of your time. If you have done a good job on probation and not incurred any serious probation violations, you should be rewarded with early termination. We have gotten many of our clients early termination and will highlight your success to the court to try to convince it to let you off probation early.
