When an individual is convicted of a criminal offense, it is not uncommon
for the court to require they complete a probationary period as part of
their conviction. The individual terms of the probation are laid out by
the court and could require the individual to have regularly scheduled
meetings with their designated probation officer, submit to predetermined
drug testing, pay a court-ordered fine, complete some form of community
service, have their license suspending for a specific period of time,
complete a mandatory drug or alcohol program (if the specific charges
so warrant), and more. Violating any of the terms of your probation is
a serious offense and could land you in jail. In addition, anyone who
commits a crime, while already on probation for another crime, can expect
to be facing severe consequences and penalties.
At the Law Offices of Glaser, Damone & Schroeder, we understand that
probation terms can sometimes be difficult to understand. Any misunderstanding
as to the terms of your probation, however, could cause you to unintentionally
violate your probation, thus subjecting yourself to additional penalties
and jail time. If you or a loved one has been accused of violating your
probation we recommend you contact our firm and speak with a knowledgeable
criminal defense lawyer as soon as possible. When you contact our firm,
you can rest assured you will be given the personalized, dedicated and
committed representation you need when facing charges of a probation violation.
