If you are on probation for a crime, there can be a number of requirements that the court imposes in exchange for not putting you in jail, additional fines or other forms of punishment. These requirements may include, but are not limited to, fines, restitution, participation in drug rehabilitation or anger management programs, drug testing, regular meetings with your probation officer, staying out of trouble, community service and not associating with known criminals.
Failure to comply with any of your requirements can constitute a probation violation. Even a minor violation can result in your arrest and the possibility of suffering the full punishment possible for your original crime. Probation violations are extremely serious matters that can have a devastating impact on your life. If you are being accused of violating your probation, it is important that you seek the advice of a Virginia criminal defense lawyer as soon as possible.
At the law firm of Surovell Isaacs Petersen & Levy, we are committed to preserving the freedom of people who are facing incarceration or other penalties due to a probation or parole violation. You can rely on us to do everything in our power to secure the best available outcome in your case.
Fighting to Protect Your Rights
In probation violation cases, the law can put the accused person at a considerable disadvantage. The rules of evidence are not as strict, and hearsay is admissible. That means you can be accused of a probation violation solely based on another person's word without requiring any other evidence to support the claim.
When you hire our firm, our Fairfax probation violations attorneys will conduct a complete review of the matter to determine the best approach to protecting your interests. In some cases, we can meet with your probation officer to resolve the matter before it is escalated. In others, we will negotiate directly with the prosecutor to find a solution that satisfies the court and provides the best outcome for you. If necessary, we are fully prepared to take the matter to court.
