Roswell Probation Violations Attorney

Probation Violations Should Not Be Taken Lightly

Probation violations must be taken seriously because the punishments can be harsh. They are some of the most risky appearances in a Probate, Municipal, State or Superior Court in the state of Georgia. The scary part is that a probationer can be ordered back to court, sometimes by being placed immediately under arrest and held in jail, for ANY violation of ANY condition of probation.

A violation of probation can be for not completing ANY condition of the sentence, including:

  • Missing an office visit
  • Testing positive for drugs or alcohol
  • Failing to pay a fine
  • Not performing community service
  • Not completing an alcohol and drug evaluation
  • Not getting treatment and/or counseling

Judges Have Immense Power Over Probation Violations

Judges have huge power when it comes to probation violations. There is no jury trial available when you are charged with a probation violation. The judge has the power to revoke the probation and send the probationer back to jail for the balance of the sentence. Or the judge can revoke only a portion of the sentence. It is at the judge’s sole discretion.

Usually, You Can’t Bond Out

Typically, you may not bond-out when you are charged with a probation violation; you may stay in jail until the hearing. That’s why it’s important to contact a probation violation lawyer as soon as possible if you are having problems with your probation terms or your probation officer. A probation violation attorney can try to help you BEFORE you face a probation violation charge. Sometimes we can stop a probation violation from being issued.

Charged With a New Crime

If you get charged with a new offense, a new crime, this is a serious violation. The new offense can be something as serious as a felony or as simple as a misdemeanor or traffic ticket. Both can be probation violations and have big impacts on your life. Sometimes a judge will revoke probation for the remainder of the term of the sentence. This can send someone to jail or prison for months or years.
