Queens Probation Violation Attorney
Regarding Probation Violations
When a judge decides to give someone probation instead of jail or prison the condition of probation are carefully spelled out. Meticulously fulfilling the conditions of probation is a demanding and sometimes difficult proposition, but that is what your probation officer and the court demands and expects. Any failure to attend a class, have a clean drug test, keep an appointment or a variety of other requirements will not be overlooked. It could mean immediate arrest or a warrant issued for your arrest. It could also mean going to jail or prison. Don't wait to talk to a defense attorney about resolving your case.
The Importance of Fulfilling Your Probation Agreement
Being allowed to continue with your life after being convicted of a crime instead of being incarcerated is not an automatic result. It is an opportunity to remain with your family, work and see friends while fulfilling your responsibility. Violating a term of your probation may have happened as a result of an accident, family emergency, or an honest misunderstanding. However it came about, a probation violation is a serious matter. The consequences if you are found guilty could include increased fines, more restrictive probation conditions or revocation of probation and a reinstatement of the original sentence. An established probation violation defense lawyer can provide a compelling defense to protect your future.
