Probation Violation Lawyers In Lee County
Being on probation is difficult. You must check in with your probation officer on a regular basis, and your activities will be monitored closely. If you are accused of making one mistake, no matter how minor, a warrant may be issued for your arrest. You do have the right to a probation violation hearing, and having experienced legal representation by a skilled attorney at this hearing can mean that you will avoid serious criminal penalties. If you are found guilty of a probation violation, you may face maximum penalties for the offense that you were originally convicted of – and this can mean years of imprisonment. Following are examples of probation violations:
- Failure to pay a court-ordered fine
- Failure to appear in court
- Failure to check in with probation officer
- Failure to complete court-ordered community service
- Drug or alcohol abuse
- Association with known criminals
- An arrest for a new offense
