Strong Criminal Defense
In some situations, individuals who have been convicted of criminal activity may be sentenced to probation or “community supervision” instead of a full jail or prison sentence. Although probation is preferable to incarceration, it can last up to 2 years for a misdemeanor and up to 10 years for a felony offense. Failure to abide by the terms of your probation could result in serious consequences.
People sentenced to probation are strictly monitored by the court and may be required to comply with certain restrictions and requirements, such as:
- Periodic drug testing
- Maintaining gainful employment
- Mandatory community service participation
- Attendance in counseling or treatment programs
- Reporting regularly to a probation officer
Proven Probation Violation Defense Lawyer
If you or someone close to you has been accused of a probation violation, it is important that you talk to a criminal defense attorney as soon as possible. If your probation is revoked, you could be required to go to jail and may face other additional penalties.
The standard for conviction of a probation violation is not “proof beyond a reasonable doubt,” as for a criminal trial, but merely proof by a preponderance of the evidence. Because the standard is so much lower, it is crucial to retain an attorney who is knowledgeable and has a track record of success in difficult criminal defense cases. The legal team at Schneider Law Firm, P.C. is prepared to protect you aggressively and effectively.
