Probation Violation Lawyer in Prescott
When a defendant enters a plea of guilty, or is convicted of a crime and is sentenced to serve a certain period in jail, under certain circumstances the judge may suspend the jail sentence and allow probation. A defendant may be eligible for probation if convicted of a first offense. To successfully complete the probation, the defendant must meet certain requirements such as paying restitution, keeping all appointments with his or her probation officer, community service, regular drug testing, committing no additional offense, and more. There may be times when it becomes difficult for a defendant to meet all the conditions.
If a defendant fails to comply with a requirement, the department of probation can file a petition with the court to revoke probation. The court will schedule a hearing on the matter. If the judge decides to revoke probation, the defendant must serve the original jail sentence in full. An experienced probation violation lawyer will advise the defendant to do everything possible to fully comply with all probation requirements prior to the hearing. With this evidence of good intentions on the defendant’s part, our firm may be able to present a reasonable explanation to the court which results in the judge deciding to reinstate probation or the prosecutor agreeing that justice would be best served by allowing the defendant to continue with probation.
