People often underestimate the risk that they are facing when they have been charged with a probation violation. They often think that they can go in and simply clear up whatever misunderstanding they feel is happening. This is not the case. Never take probation violations lightly.
There is a very real possibility that you could be walked straight from court to jail if your probation violation hearing does not go well.
While breaking the law is a violation of probation, a whole host of other issues may be considered violations, including:
- Not paying restitution, fines or fees on time
- Failure to provide a clean drug test
- Failure to maintain contact with your probation officer
How Do You Ensure The Best Possible Outcome To A Probation Violation Hearing?
Given the immense latitude that judges have in these types of proceedings — they can ignore probation recommendations and impose much more harsh penalties — it is essential that you work with an attorney who knows our local courts and who has a well-respected reputation in them.
