Violating Probation Terms
There are a number of ways a person can violate their probation. There may be a communication breakdown with the probation officer, a new criminal charge, or simply put the person didn’t fully understand the terms of their probation. We understand there are two sides to every story, and at Poole Law Office PLLC we can ensure the judge understands your perspective.
Probation Violation Hearings
If the probation officer alleges you violated probation, a judge may issue a warrant for your arrest. Once in custody, you will be served with a notice of alleged violations. It is important that you discuss the alleged violations with a Duluth probation violation lawyer before you admit or deny the violations in court. Depending on the nature of the underlying crime and your original sentence, admitting the violation could result in an execution of your sentence, or the loss of a stay of imposition or stay of adjudication. At Poole Law Office PLLC we will ensure you pick the best course of action.
