Probation Revocation Hearings
You messed up. You were accused of breaking the law and, maybe after several court appearances and/or a jury trial, you were given a second chance and granted probation. Now, several months or years into your probation, the State has alleged that you violated one or more terms and wants to revoke your supervision - they want you locked up. You no longer have a right to a jury trial, and the State’s burden to prove you violated your probation is very low.
At times, the fight in probation revocation hearings is about whether you violated a term of probation. Often, the better fight is focused only about what should be done regarding the violation. Not every probation violation merits revocation, and there are a variety of alternatives that should be considered before sending someone to prison. It is in your best interest to have an attorney who knows when and what to fight in these hearings.
