Accused Of Violating The Terms Of Probation?
In trying to avoid jail, many people choose probation; however, probation is not without its challenges. The conditions that are commonly part of probation can be difficult to comply with, and may include the following:
- Drug Tests — Random drug tests are a common probation violation.
- Securing Employment — You may not be able to prove that you are diligently seeking employment.
- Contact with Law Enforcement — Being questioned by the police, and failing to acknowledge that contact in your monthly affidavit, can lead to a probation violation.
- Committing a New Crime — Further violations of the law, even minor violations, can constitute a violation of probation. This may be true even if you are found innocent of the new violation.
The goal, once a probation violation has been alleged, is to seek reinstatement to probation without having to go to jail or state prison. You can also seek to have the terms of probation extended or modified. Experience in the local criminal courts is a tremendous asset when working to defend someone against allegations of having violated his or her probation.
