After you have been arrested and convicted of a crime, probation or parole may be granted to you in addition to, or instead of, prison time. What this means for you is that you will have to follow certain restrictions for a period of time, to which there are no exceptions. Probation does offer a degree of freedom compared to being in jail or prison, yet violations can lead to additional penalties.
If you have been accused of violating your probation order, you could be facing serious consequences including prison time. Our New Haven criminal defense lawyer at Red Law Firm, LLC can help.
When you are on probation, you are essentially expected to follow the law to the strictest degree. You must report to your probation officer on a regular basis at specific times, take and pass random drug tests, and obtain or maintain employment. If you believe you are in trouble or have been threatened by your parole officer but have not yet been arrested, it is vital that you speak with a New Haven probation violation attorney right away.
We understand that you may be panicking over the thought of being sent to prison or going back to prison. It is important that you remain calm, especially when you are speaking to law enforcement. We have more than a decade of experience in the field of criminal defense and are ready to put our knowledge to use for you.
