Potential Consequences of a Probation Violation
Some people don’t give much consideration to a probation violation, assuming that the penalties won’t be as severe as they would for the underlying crime. That’s actually not the case at all. In fact, if you’re convicted, the judge may be able to revoke the terms of your probation and order the maximum sentence allowed for your original crime. Other potential consequences of a probation violation include:
- Serving jailtime
- Paying additional fines
- Performing community service
- Serving a longer probationary period
That’s why it’s so important to hire a knowledgeable attorney to defend you against probation violation charges. Charles Holloway has extensive experience representing clients charged with violating the terms of their probation. He will consult with you regarding defense strategies and options, attempt to negotiate a settlement when appropriate, and represent you in court if your case doesn’t settle. And, in some instances, he can help you maximize your chances of success by proactively addressing what led to your violation, such as by helping you enroll in counseling or substance abuse therapy prior to your court date.
