Violations of Probation

COUNSEL FROM OUR TRUSTED TALLAHASSEE CRIMINAL DEFENSE LAWYERS

If you have been charged with a violation of probation, be it based on a parole violation or a new offense, you’re facing a case unlike what you have seen in the past. Probation violations are cases move more rapidly through the criminal justice system based largely in part because of the things you are no longer entitled to. In these cases, you are no longer entitled to bond or to a jury.
Because of these reasons, it is critical that you hire a proven defense counsel to navigate your probation violation case. At Brooks, LeBoeuf, Foster, Gwartney & Hobbs we know the challenges criminal defendants face while out on parole and what the stakes are when they are accused of violating their probation. Our skilled criminal defense attorneys are ready to bring assertive and effective counsel to protect your rights and freedoms.

THE CHALLENGES OF PROBATION VIOLATION CASES

Violations of probation cases are not judged the standard of innocence or guilt beyond a reasonable doubt. Instead, the case is 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. Because of this change in standard the accused is at a disadvantage.

Violation of probation charges can occur for several 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
