Parole and Probation Violations in Muskegon
After a criminal conviction, you may be placed on parole, either as your sentence, or after you serve your sentence. When you are let out on parole, a judge will assign certain terms that you must follow, and failing to comply can lead to extended penalties, or even additional criminal punishment.

Attorney for Probation or Parole Violations
When you are put on parole, your parole officer is the sole authority and judge over whether or not your actions meet the standards set by a judge, and even the slightest error in judgment might lead to threats of a parole violation hearing. Working with an attorney may be the difference between serving the rest of your parole and facing additional penalties, such as an extended term or jail time.
Because the terms of a parole or probation period are very case specific, the actions that constitute a parole or probation violation differ greatly. Always speak to an attorney if you are accused of any violation of terms, or if you are facing a probation hearing.
Some actions that can result in parole/probation violations include:
- Failing to appear in court
- Facing criminal charges
- Moving without proper authorization
- Traveling out of state without proper authorization
- Failing a drug or alcohol test
- Failing to remain employed
- Dropping out of or missing school
If you have been accused of any of these actions, you may be facing a probation violation hearing and possible penalties. Contact our firm now and begin fighting back against serious criminal penalties.
Penalties for Violating Probation/Parole in Michigan
Like the unique violations you can be accused of, the penalties you face for violating parole depend greatly on your case, as well as the unique details of your violation. It is possible to continue to serve your parole with no penalties, but only with the help of an experienced attorney will you be able to achieve the best available case result.
If you are found guilty of violating parole, you may have the terms of your parole modified, or the probationary period you are facing may be extended or reset. In cases involving more serious violations, however, you may be forced to serve the jail time that an initial sentence including parole had allowed you to avoid.
If you contact a lawyer right away, you will have the best chance to avoid being found guilty of a parole or probation violation. Get in touch with a member of our experienced team now and start fighting for justice.
