Probation Violation Lawyer in Kerrville

A KERRVILLE PROBATION ATTORNEY COULD DEFEND YOU

In many different criminal defense cases, a person could be convicted and sentenced to jail or prison. Oftentimes there is no other alternative provided, but in some cases, a person may be given the chance to go on probation in lieu of spending time behind bars. By following strict rules of behavior and conduct, such as meeting with their probation officer, seeking and keeping employment, and avoiding additional criminal charges, a person could successfully complete their probation period. However, violation of any of the terms of their probation could bring consequences.

TYPES OF PROBATION VIOLATIONS AND THEIR PENALTIES

When a person breaks any of the rules of their probation terms, they are in violation of their probation and could be penalized if they cannot properly defend themselves. Examples of a probation violation include:

  • Failure to report to your probation officer
  • Failure to obtain/maintain employment
  • Staying out past curfew
  • Travelling outside of your geographic boundaries without permission
  • Receiving an additional criminal charge

Once probation has been violated, the person may be required to serve the remainder of their jail or prison sentence, this time without any additional chance of probation. However, with the skill of a Kerrville criminal defense attorney on their side, he or she could build a strong case and fight against false charges of a probation violation.
