Los Angeles Probation Violation Lawyer
If you or someone you know has violated probation and you want to avoid jail time, our Los Angeles criminal defense lawyers can help.
Probation is what is received as an alternative to jail or prison time. You may receive a formal or informal probation. Formal probation would require you to meet with your probation officer regularly and informal probation would require you to stay out of trouble and complete certain terms of the sentence.
A completion of probation may allow you to completely avoid incarceration. On the other hand, if you violate probation, an arrest may take place and you may be ordered to appear at a court hearing. As your probation violations defense attorney we want to do everything we can to help you avoid any type of jail time.
In probation violation cases, the judge is the trier of facts and the prosecution must prove that there was a probation violation by a preponderance of the evidence, a standard that is way lower than the standard used in a criminal case. That is more of a reason to hire our aggressive, persistent, and knowledgeable attorneys.
There are many consequences to a probation violation charge such as extension of probationary period; community service; treatment programs; prison or jail time.
Probation violation does have some serious charges and that is why it is important for you to obtain an experienced and well seasoned defense attorney if you are facing probation violations charges.
