Probation Violation

Probation Violation

Probation is an alternative to a jail sentence. Rather than being incarcerated, you remain free to live your life as long as you abide by the terms of your probation. The terms of your probation are set by a judge. If you are accused of willfully violating one or more of the conditions, you may be in violation of the probation sentence commonly referred to as VOP.

If you violate the terms of the probation, the judge has the option of revoking the probation and imposing the maximum sentence allowed by law. Often times, those accused of violation of probation incur additional penalties. For these reasons, it is imperative to hire an experienced criminal defense attorney to handle a VOP charge.

An experienced defense attorney can assist you in asking the judge to allow you to stay on probation until the end of the term and help you avoid additional penalties.
