In the court’s eyes, probation is considered a privilege because the accused can avoid a harsher punishment, such as jail time or hefty fines. Realistically, probation can be a blessing for some, but a curse for others. As experienced criminal defense attorneys, we know that completing probation is not an easy task, and probation violation is a common occurrence.
A violation can happen for several reasons. In many cases, the defendant has done nothing wrong, or the circumstances were out of their control. Probation officers frequently rush to submit violations and work tirelessly to get your probation reinstated or even terminated. Ultimately, if you have violated the terms of your probation, your future freedom is at stake.
