Probation Violations

If you are sentenced in either District or Circuit Court it is likely that in addition to all of the fines, court costs, classes, that you are required to pay/attend, you will also be put on some period of probation.

BE AWARE : THE CONSEQUENCES OF MANY PROBATION VIOLATIONS ARE WORSE THAN THE ORIGINAL SENTENCE AND JAIL IS MORE LIKELY. IF YOU HAVE VIOLATED YOUR PROBATION, IF A WARRANT IS OUT FOR YOUR ARREST… DO NOT PANIC OR DESPAIR.

All that is necessary is for you to make one simple phone call to an attorney. By making this phone call at the outset of the case you will probably avoid trouble. Certainly you will avoid a warrant placed upon you and by talking to your probation officer early on your attorney will have a much better chance to shape the outlines of the case so as to avoid a negative outcome.
