When you are given a probation sentence, the importance of keeping to the terms of your probation cannot be overstated. Any perceived violation of your probation could not only lead you back to jail but also to additional penalties. This is a time when you are working to move past this difficulty and complete your sentence fully—don't let one mistake jeopardize your chance for a better future.
At the Law Office of Jeff Manciagli, we are committed to helping our clients understand their rights in court and more importantly, what they can do to protect those rights and freedoms from infringement. If you have been given probation as an alternative to a jail sentence, you have already experienced the difference that effective defense can make. However, authorities regulate the terms of probation very heavily and when you are being closely watched, the smallest lapse in judgment can lead you back to the former sentence.
There are several factors that could affect the outcome of a probation violation hearing:
Probation violations could cause you to lose your alternative sentence and serious violations could lead you to be held in criminal contempt of court, which carries additional possible penalties. Don't let one mistake jeopardize all the hard work that has led you to this point.
