Accused Of Violating Probation? We Can Help.
If you have been placed on probation as a result of a criminal conviction, a violation of the terms of your probation will lead to serious consequences. If you have been accused of a probation violation or have reason to believe you will not be able to adhere to the rules you have been bound to, it is important to consult with an experienced criminal defense lawyer as soon as possible.
At Stevenson Law Office in Missoula, we have extensive experience handling probation violation cases for clients throughout western Montana. We can help you in every facet of your case, from communicating with your probation officer to defending your rights at hearings or at trial.
Defending Against Probation Violation Accusations
If a court finds you have violated your probation, you may face fines, community service or extended probation. You may have to serve the rest of your sentence in jail. Before making a statement to anyone, talk with your own defense lawyer. There are viable defense strategies we can use on your behalf.
Probation violations include:
- Failing a drug or alcohol test
- Traveling without the consent of your probation officer
- Sharing the company of persons you are not allowed to interact with
- Committing another criminal offense
Just because you have been accused of violating your probation does not mean that it happened. Your accuser may be mistaken, even if it is your probation officer. In some cases, circumstances such as an illness or accident make it impossible for a person to adhere to the terms of probation.
