Protecting You After You Have Served Your Time
You have already spent time in jail or federal prison for being convicted of a crime. You have since been released from confinement, only to find that you are still dealing with numerous consequences in the form of probation. Now you find yourself facing charges for a probation violation.
At the Texas law firm of Scott H. Palmer, P.C., our Dallas probation violation attorneys understand that many aspects of probation are unclear or incredibly easy to miss. Unfortunately, probation officers and departments do not care, and are quick to enforce further consequences upon individuals who have already served their time and paid their dues.
If this situation sounds familiar to you, then reach out to our firm for dedicated and aggressive defense against your probation violation charges. Call us at 214-660-5785 or contact our Texas law firm online to learn more in a free consultation.
Probation Violations and Probation Hearings
What most individuals do not understand is that one single violation can lead to a probation hearing and potential consequences. Common probation violations include:
- Failure to check in with your probation officer
- Failure to appear at required court hearings
- Failure of a routine drug test/urine analysis
- Failure to pay fines
- Being arrested for another criminal act
- Being found in possession of narcotics or weapons
Do not attend this hearing alone. If you do, you will likely find yourself facing consequences ranging from a longer probation period, stricter rules or even imprisonment. With an experienced criminal defense attorney by your side, you have a better chance of reducing your potential consequences or seeking other sentencing options.
