St. Louis Attorneys Handling Probation Violations
In many criminal cases, probation is a favorable outcome. Probation allows a defendant in a criminal case to continue living an ordinary life while remaining under scrutiny. Violation of probation, however, is a serious crime of its own. A conviction of violation of probation can mean:
- Deferred penalties of the original crime may be implemented. For example, a defendant may be required to go to jail after all.
- There may be additional penalties for the crime of violating probation.
A judge may sentence you to the full original sentence, continue your probationary period, or extend the period of your probation if you are convicted of violating probation.
Allegations of probation violation sometimes arise from misunderstandings between accused individuals and probation officers. Did you attempt to meet with your probation officer as required but missed the appointment because of incomplete information about where and when to meet? Did your probation officer accuse you of telling untruths or otherwise misbehaving during scheduled check-in meetings? Whatever the circumstances, we are prepared to help you devise a successful strategy.
