Depending on the specifics of your parole or probation agreement, there are a number of different ways you could potentially violate the terms. In some cases, a person is required to maintain a job or stay in school. Oftentimes, court-ordered classes or self-help meetings are also required. In cases involving drug or alcohol related offenses, compliance with randomized or regular drug testing may be required. Being accused of a criminal offense while on probation or parole could also lead to violation charges, as could missing a court date or a meeting with your probation officer. In some cases, leaving the state or moving without notifying the officer assigned to your case can lead to parole or probation violation charges.
Each case is unique, and the court will determine during sentencing what the conditions of your parole or probation are. If you are accused of violating the terms of your release, you could face penalties as severe or more severe than those you faced for the initial offense. It is critical that you work with a qualified defense attorney throughout every stage of the post-conviction defense process so that you can be certain that your rights are protected even as accusations are made against you. We understand that some have a tendency to think the worst of those who are on probation or parole for a past offense, and will fight to ensure you receive a fair and balanced decision in your case. Contact us now and let our Clinton parole and probation violation defense team help you in your battle to protect your best interests.
Just as the terms of any parole or probation are unique to specific cases, so are the potential penalties you will face if accused of a probation violation. In many cases, parole or probation is lengthened, and the terms are made to be even more restricting. In other cases, especially those involving repeat violators, it is likely that the court will sentence you to serve penalties that correspond to the initial charge you are on parole or probation for. In serious cases, such as those involving the commission of a new offense, you could face criminal penalties for multiple different charges compounded on top of one another.
