Probation Violations

Defending Clients Against Probation Violation Charges

Many persons convicted of crimes receive sentences that include periods of probation. This is almost always a better alternative than jail or prison. However, receiving probation does not mean that you no longer need to be concerned about the justice system. In fact, you are required to exercise an enhanced level of personal responsibility to conform to the requirements of the probationary sentence.

At the Law Offices of Jess C. Bedore III, in Roseville, California, our lawyers defend clients who have been charged with violating the terms of their probation. These violations can include:

  • Failing to perform ordered community services, pay fines or attend counseling as required
  • Associating with known criminals
  • Committing other crimes
  • Failing to pay restitution
  • Failing drug or alcohol tests
  • Incurring a DUI while on probation

Increasingly, probation violations such as these lead to revocation of probation and reinstatement of jail time. However, an experienced defense lawyer may be able to help you.

How Our Lawyers Can Help

Our defense strategy for probation violations involves a two-pronged approach. First, we try to have dismissed the current offense that triggered the probation violation charge. This can involve negotiating with the prosecutor or bringing forward mitigating or exculpatory evidence.

Second, we work to have clients allowed to attend drug or alcohol treatment rather than going to jail or prison. Our attorneys are knowledgeable about the wide variety of treatment programs that exist and can recommend the best one for each client. Some may benefit from in-patient treatment, while others will be more successful in outpatient programs. Our goals are to keep you out of jail or prison and get you the treatment you need to be successful in the future.
