People on probation have been found guilty but are serving probation rather than a prison or jail sentence. These individuals must abide by the terms of probation, often under the supervision of a probation officer. If you are found to be in violation of probation, the probation officer can request to file a petition for violation of probation. In some situations, the individual may then face incarceration or enhanced penalties.
Probation Revoked? J. Michael Price II Can Help.
Has a motion to revoke probation been filed? It is imperative to contact an experienced criminal defense attorney as soon as you can. It is entirely possible to convince the judge or DA to reinstate your probation or have it reinstated after you have completed an alternate punishment. As an experienced attorney, I have handled probation revocations on behalf of many clients who have allegedly violated the terms of their probation. Terms of probation can include the following:
- Regularly report to probation officer
- Refrain from criminal activity
- Submit to alcohol/drug testing
- Participate in alcohol/drug treatment
- Perform community service
- Live at a directed address or make a timely notification of address change
If you have failed to report to your probation officer, committed a subsequent crime or failed to report for court, your probation could be provoked. The probation officer will request to file a petition for violation of probation. At the hearing, they may request enhanced probation conditions, a longer probation time or even jail or prison time.
My law firm has been successful at saving many clients from going to jail or prison when motions to revoke were filed against them. It may not be possible in every situation to get your probation reinstated. If your probation is revoked, I will fight on your behalf to get the least amount of incarceration time.
