Probation & Parole Violations
When your probation or parole officer feels that you violated the terms of your probation, he or she can ask the court to issue a warrant for your arrest. Your failure to abide by these terms may lead to formal parole and probation revocation charges. Often you will be held without bail until your sentencing judge can hear your case. You need to hire an experienced criminal defense lawyer to defend you against these serious charges.
In many instances, people do not intentionally violate the terms of their probation or parole. It is our job to convince the court that your violation was not willful or intentional. We will defend you in evidentiary and revocation hearings related to allegations that you:
- Committed a new offense
- Failed a UA
- Did not report to your probation officer
- Failed to pay restitution or a fine
- Failed to complete community service
For many of the people charged with a parole or probation violation there are simple explanations to their actions. Whether the judge or probation officer believes them is a completely different story. It is our firm’s job to convince them that you are telling the truth.
If your probation or parole officer is accusing you of a parole or probation violation, contact a criminal defense attorney at the law office of James Lee Bright for a free initial consultation.
