Probation Violation in San Bernardino, Riverside, Los Angeles or Orange County
As a Prosecutor, Attorney Michael J. Holmes successfully litigated countless Probation Violation Cases. Now, he is a Southern California Criminal Defense Attorney who successfully defends them in Orange County, San Bernardino County, Riverside County, and Los Angeles County.
Probation is generally part of a convicted criminal’s punishment in California. Probationary terms may vary in San Bernardino, Riverside, San Diego, Los Angeles, or Orange County, but they must be strictly adhered to. Violating the terms of your probation can lead to harsh consequences such as jail time, fines, or imprisonment.
When terms of probation are violated, law authority will take the following things into consideration:
- the offender’s previous probation violations
- the nature of the probation violation
- any recent criminal activity surrounding probationary terms
As soon as probation has been violated, an arrest can occur. If you violate the terms of your probation, you can have the terms of your punishment increased and also have your probation sentence extended.
Has a Warrant for Arrest Been Issued?
In many situations, a judge will allow individuals to surrender to the court, rather than to the police. By working with the California court, your chances of being arrested may be reduced, which may allow you to avoid future incarceration. With a skilled probation violation attorney on your team, your success is more likely to be achieved.
