Probation Violations Require Immediate Action

If you have been accused of a probation violation, you have limited time to request a hearing. Failure to take immediate action could result in revocation of a suspended sentence or acceleration of a deferred adjudication. In other words, you could be taken off probation and put behind bars, so it is critical that you enlist an experienced lawyer as soon as possible to defend you against the accusations that you violated probation.

At Smalley Law Firm in Norman, our attorneys have more than 25 years of experience helping people protect their probation status and handling other criminal law matters. We recognize that probation is often the result of a hard-fought battle, so it is worth fighting to stay on probation. We have a reputation for results in these matters.

Defense Against All Types Of Probation Violations

Many probation violations are technical violations. While these may not involve separate criminal allegations, they are still serious and can lead to revocation, acceleration, or other sanctions or modification of probation terms. Examples of technical violations include:

  • Failing to report to a probation officer
  • Failing to perform community service
  • Failing to attend alcohol or drug counseling
  • Failing an alcohol or drug test
  • Failing to meet a curfew
  • Failing to go to work or school

Being charged with another crime could also lead to a probation violation. These cases are complex because they lead to a battle that must be fought on two fronts. Thankfully, our lawyers have the experience to defend you against new charges and accompanying penalties, while also fighting to protect your probation status and keep you out of jail or prison.
