Violation of Probation

Defendants caught (either by police or probation officers) violating a condition of probation are subject to having their probation revoked (taken away) and all or part of the original suspended jail or prison sentence imposed. Because one typical condition of probation is to obey all laws, a probationer who is rearrested on even a minor charge may be subject to penalties for both the current arrest and the probation violation.

If you have violated your probation it is essential that you seek legal counsel as soon as possible. Attorney David Brown a former Deputy District Attorney is well versed in how to handle these types of offenses.
