Defense Lawyer for Probation Violations in Lawrenceville
There are various reasons a charge could be filed against you for a probation violation, including:
- Failing to attend a meeting with a probation officer when scheduled
- Failing a drug test
- Failure to pay fines within the time limits
- Being accused of committing another offense
Some of these legal problems could be based upon an administrative error, or you may have been unable to attend a meeting due to illness, or other issue that will could allow for a fast resolution – but get me to help you get it done. Other violations are more serious, particularly if you are facing new charges while on probation. No matter what your situation is, the fact remains that your freedom could be lost. A probation violation often leads to a cancellation of probation, and the judge may require you to serve the entire jail or prison term you avoided by being on probation, with added time for the violation.
A probation officer could appear at a hearing with the judge who originally sentenced you. At this hearing, the probation officer often requests the judge to issue a warrant for your arrest. Once this warrant is issued by the judge, you can be picked up any time, any place, and taken into custody immediately. A DUI offense includes 1 year term of probation, a mandatory term for convicted DUI offenders. If you are arrested for another crime while on probation for a DUI, or other offense, you can be held in custody without bail. If you have a warrant for your arrest for a probation violation, or if you have been picked up for a violation, get a professional criminal defense lawyer on your side at once. Your freedom is important. Your rights must be protected.
