The Challenges of Probation Violation Cases
Violations of probation are not judged on an innocence or guilt beyond a reasonable doubt standard. They are judged on a more likely than not standard meaning is it more likely that you did what they are accusing you of, or less likely. This means that the accused is at a disadvantage in these cases.
Violation of probation charges can transpire from a number of reasons including:
- A failed drug test
- Failure to report to your probation officer
- Failing to inform your probation officer of a recent move
- Missing a mandatory counseling session
Because you have already been convicted of a crime, you are afforded less protection from the courts so it is extremely important to have legal representation from the very first moments of being charged. You have TOO MUCH AT STAKE not to protect your legal rights.
