Accused of Violating Probation? The Fight for Your Freedom Starts Here

Livingston County Probation Violation Attorney

Have you been accused of violating the terms of your probation?

So you were arrested for a crime and ordered by a judge to serve out a probation sentence. During your probation you are required to meet certain requirements before a set deadline and you are expected to be on your best behavior. The work "probation" actually comes from the Latin word probare, which means "to test." The court is testing you and observing your behavior during this time to see if you fulfill your criminal sentence. The unfortunate part is, if you fail to meet every term and condition of your probation, the court could put out a warrant for your arrest and you are back where you started. With family, friends, work and other commitments, it can be very tough meeting the deadlines of probation. If you that a deadline is quickly approaching or it has already passed, turn to a Livingston County criminal defense lawyer from our firm.

Defending Against Probation Violations in Rochester, NY

Even if you violate what appears to be a minor term within your probation agreement, the court could decide to file probation violation charges against you. The court has full authority and discretion when it comes to punishing probation violation offenders- they could decide to extend your probation, or add on additional limitations and penalties onto your sentence. When faced with probation violation charges you could end up with additional community service work, extra counseling, paying restitution, or additional incarceration. With penalties such as these, you should not leave anything to chance. Don't go to court unprotected and unprepared without a defense strategy.

Our Western New York lawyers handle probation violation cases involving:

  • A direct violation of the terms and conditions of probation - Which could mean that you failed to pay a fine, failed to attend court-ordered counseling or failed to obey a restraining order.
  • Associating with common, well-known criminals and living a similar lifestyle
  • Committing a subsequent criminal offense
  • Being incapable of being a responsible, law-abiding citizen within society
  • Failing to pay court-ordered restitution
