Probation Violation Attorney in Pasadena, CA
Know the rules to prevent probation violation
If you have been convicted of a crime, you may have been put on probation as a part of your sentencing.
Probation rules and regulations can be complicated, and many people end up violating the terms of their probation without meaning to or without knowing that they did.
Unfortunately, if you violate the terms of your probation, you could have your probation revoked and be sent back to jail.
Probation violations are often punished by the following:
- Probation revocation
- Community service
- Probation extension
- Court ordered rehabilitation
- Physical labor
- Jail time
Even if you did violate the terms of your probation, you still have a number of rights under the law and should exercise them freely. You have the right to:
- An attorney
- A hearing regarding your probation violation
- Be informed of the evidence against you
- Be informed of why you were accused of a probation violation
- Obtain a written notice of the violation you are being accused of
First and foremost, you have the right to an attorney and should consult with one as soon as you are notified of the violation.
I have successfully defended a number of clients accused of probation violations, and I have petitioned the court to keep them from going back to jail.
If you’ve committed a probation violation or even just think you might have, you need to consult with an experienced criminal defense attorney right away. I can help protect your rights and liberties under the law. Call me today to talk about your probation. (626) 773-6965.
