What is a Probation Violation?
With so many possibilities and no ironclad rule that states the exact definition, a probation attorney has some latitude to argue for your innocence in a hearing. Certainly, some charges are clear cut, such as being arrested while you are already on probation. However, the law does allow for some creativity in your defense and our adroit and dedicated law firm will work hard to deliver those reasons without affecting your initial sentencing guidelines.
Some examples of probation violation include, but are not limited to:
- Associating with known criminals
- Being arrested without criminal charge
- Committing new crimes
- Failure to appear in court
- Failure to enroll in or complete rehabilitation or community service
- Failure to pay a fine
- Failure to pay restitution to a victim
- Failure to report to a probation officer
- Possession of drugs or illegal weapons
Probation is granted by the courts as a second chance at redemption for your previous charge. When a probation violation occurs, it is frowned upon by the courts and can lead to serious consequences. It is very important to contact our firm today if you or someone you love is being accused.
