Probation Violation

When an individual is convicted of a crime, the criminal sentence may include probation: a punishment in lieu of a jail sentence. The convicted individual is required to comply with terms of the probation to avoid the jail sentence. If you have been charged with a probation violation, you risk many harsh penalties, including jail time, heavy fines and enhanced probation requirements.

Helping Individuals Avoid Jail Time

As a criminal defense firm, we are dedicated to protecting the rights, interests and futures of our clients facing felony and misdemeanor charges. We seek the best possible outcome on behalf of our clients, helping them avoid possible jail time. You are never just a number at our firm.

For many people convicted of a crime, probation is a welcome option. Probation terms often require the following:

  • Regular "check ins" with your probation officer
  • Abstaining from committing crimes
  • Community service
  • Attending drug/alcohol treatment or counseling
  • Paying criminal restitution
  • Abstaining from alcohol and drugs

Violation of probation terms can result in an arrest and penalties. You may be required to appear in court. Attorney Reno defends clients in both types of probation violation hearings: detention hearings and final surrender hearings.

At the detention hearing, the court will decide whether you should be held in jail without bail until the final hearing. At the final hearing, the court will decide whether you were in violation of the terms of your probation.
