Parole and Probation Violations

Probation Violation Penalties in Michigan

If you have violated probation or parole in Michigan, you are subject to serious punishments. Although it is possible to continue probation without punishment for violating a condition, you will need an experienced lawyer to help you achieve this beneficial result. In some cases, you will be able to continue probation or parole with modified conditions, which can include additional community service or restrictions on your freedom. Your probation or parole could also be extended, and you will be faced with hampered freedom for an even longer period of time. If you commit a serious parole or probation violation, however, your probation or parole will be revoked and you will be charged with a criminal offense. Contact a lawyer immediately to ensure you do not face criminal charges due to a parole or probation violation.

Our Approach to Probation and Parole Violations in Michigan

Michigan courts see probation as a privilege, and can be extremely harsh on probation or parole violators. However, probation or parole violations must be based on a preponderance of the evidence that the violation occurred, meaning it was more than likely you did indeed violate a condition of your probation or parole. A Michigan lawyer can help you prove your innocence and protect you from the prosecution. It is much easier for the prosecution to prove you committed an offense at a violation hearing than a normal criminal trial, so it is of the utmost importance you have Grabel & Associates on your side at this stage of your case.
