Defending your Freedom in a Probation or Parole Violation Cases
If you are found in violation of the terms of your probation you will be resentenced by a judge. The last thing I want to see is a probationer go to prison for a minor violation such as a failure to report. I take these cases personally. I think it is a shame to see offenders go to jail for such minor infractions. If selected as your attorney I will fight hard to keep you out of jail or have you released if you are already there. I would attempt to negotiate with the district attorney’s office, the probation department and the judge to minimize your jail time. In some cases you can challenge the violation. You are entitled to what is known as a formal Gagnon II hearing if you feel you have not violated the terms of your probation. Technical violations can be beat in some situations. Contact Jason R.
