How Violating Probation Or Parole Can Hurt You
It is easy to think that probation and parole are simply opportunities to go back to your life and pick up where you left off after committing an offense or serving your sentence. However, violating your probation or parole is a serious offense that may lead to more penalties. These include extension of probation or parole, additional terms of probation or parole or even revocation of probation or parole.
Whether or not you did violate your probation or parole, you might think that the safest thing to do is not cause any problems, and simply plead guilty. However, that’s not the case. An experienced defense attorney may be able to help you.
Why You Need A Defense Attorney
When you are assigned probation or parole, you will be given certain conditions you must meet. These often include items such as reporting to your probation or parole officer, not visiting certain places or people, not committing a new offense and more. If you violate these conditions, you will face a hearing where a prosecutor will try to prove that you did, in fact, violate the terms of your probation or parole. You need a skilled defense attorney on your side to protect your interests, with the goal to reduce or eliminate those charges.
