A probation violation charge can have serious and long-lasting impacts if improperly handled.
Depending on the conditions of probation it may be extremely easy to violate them through:
- Providing a "dirty" urine analysis
- Violating interlock provisions
- Scram violations
- Missed appointments
- Delinquent fees
- Delinquent court costs
- Failure to complete service hours
- Failure to comply with counseling requirements
- Failure to comply with random urine analysis
Depending on circumstance, a probation violation can result in extended time on probation, or worse, a trip back to jail. If you or someone close to you has been charged with a probation violation, it is important to reach out to an attorney immediately to stay out of jail and keep serving your existing time on probation.
With the experience of more than 12,000 criminal cases, our team of lawyers is prepared to work directly with you, your judge and/or probation officer to reduce any new conditions or terms. We are able to pursue options, including:
- Conversion of community supervision restitution to a fine
- Motion to reduce or terminate probation
- Motion to remove conditions of probation
- Early release petitions
- Transfers to other jurisdictions
We will do everything to persuasively explain the circumstances and facilitate your return to society.
In the event that a judge issues a warrant for arrest with no set bond amount and someone is arrested and put in jail, only an attorney can secure the release. We are able to bring our experience to work on these issues, as well.
