PROBATION QUESTIONS

When convicted of a criminal offense, the court has the option of sentencing you to jail or prison and assessing a fine, or suspending the imposition of the sentence and placing you under supervision for a defined period of time. During this supervisory period you will be assigned a probation officer and required to comply with certain obligations. Failure to comply with the terms of probation may lead to a revocation of your probation and a sentence of jail or prison time.


PENALTIES

What Are the Penalties for Violating Probation?

Should you violate any of the terms of your probation, a probation officer will report the violation and possibly move to have your probation revoked. Once the motion is filed, a warrant for your arrest will be issued. Upon arrest, you will be given the opportunity to appear before a judge who will determine whether to continue you on probation or to revoke it. Typically, if your probation is revoked you go to jail or prison. Obviously, it is critical to contact an experienced criminal defense attorney immediately if you have reason to believe you have violated any of the terms of your probation. Our lawyers can not only arrange to have you released while waiting to see the judge, but also start evaluating and marshalling the evidence necessary to preserve your liberty.

CONSEQUENCES

What Happens If I Violate My Probation?

When you fail to complete the requirements of your probation, your probation officer can file a motion to revoke your probation. Most times a warrant will also be issued for your arrest. Unless the judge allows for your jail release, you will sit in jail – sometimes for weeks- until the motion to revoke is heard. Since no bond is typically involved, your attorney is the only one who can obtain your release from jail. It is therefore critical that you hire a criminal defense attorney as soon as possible. Challenging the allegations in the motion or devising alternatives to revocation are necessary if you want to avoid a jail or prison sentence.

DEFERRED ADJUDICATION

What Is Deferred Adjudication?

Deferred Adjudication is another type of probation. When you receive a deferred adjudication, the judge has decided that although there is enough evidence for you to be found guilty, the court is going to defer any finding of guilt and place you on probation. Should you complete the probation, you may be eligible to have the entire matter sealed from the eyes of the public. However, although this type of probation may seem quite attractive, should you fail to complete your probation you face the full range of punishment for your crime. In other words, as opposed to a regular probation, where the term of your jail or prison sentence is specifically defined if your probation is revoked, with a deferred adjudication you face the maximum penalty range for the offense upon revocation.
