Probation Violations

Probation can be ordered in lieu of or in addition to serving time in jail. It is designed to test the behavior of convicted offenders and their ability to become active law-abiding residents of the community. With years of experience handling many probation cases, we know a probation violation is not something you want to take lightly or try to handle on your own. The consequences can be severe. In most cases, if you are found to have violated your probation, you may be sentenced to serve all or some of the original stayed sentence in jail or prison. Probation violations are not something that should be taken lightly. If your probation agent has told you that he or she is planning to file a violation report, you should consult with an experienced criminal defense attorney immediately. You should seek the counsel of an attorney who has extensive experience in representing clients who have been accused of violating the terms of their probation. The sooner you consult with an attorney, the earlier you will be able to mount a defense against accusations that may result in incarceration. Whether you think you may have done something wrong or you know you haven’t, you need to start preparing your defense as soon as possible. An experienced criminal defense attorney can help you to avoid being taken into custody as a result of the violation report as well as help you obtain the best result possible. Attorney Kurt J.
