Beverly Hills Probation Violations
Get a Beverly Hills criminal lawyer on your side today!
Sometimes, when a person is convicted of a crime that is not considered to be very severe, they may be allowed to remain in society under strict supervision instead of serving a prison sentence. This is known as probation. Any person on probation must obey very strict rules and terms regarding their probation; otherwise, they will be guilty of a violation and suffer additional penalties on top of those they have already received for their previous crime. There are many ways in which a person could be charged with a probation violation:
- Not appearing for a court hearing
- Not reporting to their probation officer at a set time and place
- Traveling out of state or beyond the limits of their probation without the consent of their probation officer
- Committing any other crime
- Being arrested for any reason, criminal or not
Should a person on probation do any of the above, the penalties for their violation could be severe. Further terms could be added to their probation, their probation could be extended, they may be required to spend time in jail, or their probation could be suspended altogether and they will be required to serve the remainder of their sentence in jail or prison. Probation is an opportunity to salvage your life from the damage of time in jail or prison. So, if you have been convicted of a crime and are on probation but have since been charged with a violation, get legal help now.
