How Is Probation Violated?
Probation violation occurs when an individual is serving probation and he or she doesn’t adhere to the conditions required. At the Law Offices of Robert B. Muchinsky, LLC, we work with clients who have violated their probation in the following ways:
- Failure to report to a probation officer
- Failure to pay fines
- Failure to appear in front of a judge or in court
- Failure to complete probation-related treatment programs
- Failure to register on the sex offender registry (applies to sex crimes only)
- Violating protective order
- Getting arrested on another charge
- Failure to follow specific conditions of probation
A probation violation case can get complicated fast. What starts out as something that doesn’t seem serious – perhaps coming late to a probation-related court appearance – can spiral into something much more serious.
Attorney Robert Muchinsky has over 30 years of experience in criminal defense law and knows what options are available to clients who have violated probation. Whether you have been charged with DUI/drunk driving or violated the rules of your probation in another way, we can help. We will closely examine the circumstances surrounding your violation and explore all opportunities that may exist for reducing the penalties.
Hartford Parole Violations Lawyer
Parole is different from probation. Parole involves being released from prison under certain conditions set by a parole board. Probation is an alternative to prison or jail in which an individual must adhere to a set of rules.
Parole violations are often serious because there is no opportunity for a hearing. An individual can simply be snatched up off the street and made to pay the penalties. If you have violated parole, please contact us to find out what options may be available.
