A violation of probation (VOP) can have serious consequences. Any number of actions can cause you to violate the terms of your probation, including:
- Failing to report to your probation officer
- Failing to hold a job or attend school
- Failing a drug or alcohol test or failing to participate in drug or alcohol counseling
- Failing to perform community service or restitution
- Being arrested for a new criminal offense
If your probation officer accuses you of violating your probation, you face the possibility of going to jail or prison. Even worse, you don't have to be found guilty beyond a reasonable doubt in a VOP hearing. You don't even have the right to a jury trial. An experienced criminal attorney can show the court that you have, for the most part, followed the rules of probation, remained arrest free and cooperated with your probation officer. Our Buffalo probation violation attorneys may be able to convince the court that it would be better to continue you on probation than to sentence you to a jail term.Call the Law Offices of John J.
