Probation Violations

Danbury Lawyer for Probation Violations

Have you recently been accused of violating your probation?

Police car with lights onIf you have been previously convicted of a crime, such as a theft or drug crime, there is a chance that part of the penalty that you will be facing will include probation. In these circumstances, probation will be given, often in lieu of incarceration, and the convicted will be slapped with several terms that they must adhere to. These terms can be strict, confusing and difficult to follow.

Beyond this, it is important to realize that the prosecution will be waiting for you to mess up. At the slightest slip, they will pounce - slamming you with charges in a hope to have you pay the full price you avoided the first time around. Probation violations can come in all forms and can include such things as a failure to report to your probation officer, failure to appear before a judge or even just getting arrested for another charge, even if it is as simple as a traffic ticket.
