When you are convicted of a crime you are expected to comply with a long
list of terms and conditions that the court aggressively enforces. However,
if you fail to meet even one term then the court could charge you with
a probation violation and you could face further penalties.
Here at The Law Offices of Ty Martinez we understand that sometimes things
happen and don't go according to plan and we are here to advocate
for you in your time of need. Our Riverside criminal defense lawyers have
more than 20 years of combined experience and we are highly adept at combatting probation violation accusations.
If you have failed to successfully complete your probation and your probation
officer is claiming that you have committed a probation violation, then
give us a call without delay. If you fail to address this legal issue
with urgency then you could face harsh penalties including a jail or prison sentence.
Terms to Follow During Your Probation
Our experienced trial lawyers have handled a broad range of criminal cases,
including a number of probation violations. Some of the most common probation
terms that the court requires you to follow may include:
- Mandatory community service
- Court ordered counseling
- Regular check-ins with your probation officer
- Completion of a drug or alcohol program
- Maintaining a job
- Paying all court ordered fines and restitution
- Not possessing a weapon
- Not possession illegal drugs
- Complying with random home and car searches
- Appearing at all court hearings
- Keeping away from designated individuals
- Not driving on a suspended license
This list is not comprehensive and there may be other terms and conditions
that you are expected to follow throughout the duration of your probation period.
Penalties for Probation Violations
If the court finds you guilty of committing a probation violation, you
may be at risk of losing your freedom. In these types of cases the court
can do any of the following:
- Extend your probation sentence
- Add additional terms and conditions to your probation
- Arrest you on the spot and bring you before the court
- Impose additional jail time
Keep in mind that if you receive a notice to appear in court for a probation
violation hearing and you fail to appear, then
you could have your probation revoked completely and be sentenced to go to jail or prison. If your probation
is revoked, a warrant is usually issued for your arrest. If you have a
warrant you can be arrested at any time.
