Arizona Probation Violation Lawyer
If you are facing an allegation of violating your probation, it is essential that you have an experienced and aggressive criminal lawyer in court with you.
People are placed on probation for many types of criminal convictions.
This happens in misdemeanor offenses and other more serious felony charges.
Each probation grant has terms that must be followed in order to maintain your probationary status.
Some common terms of probation in Arizona, for example, are to remain law-abiding, not consume alcohol, and to attend and successfully complete counseling or treatment.
If the court or probation department believes that you have not adhered to all the terms of your probation, a probation violation can be charged.
Common probation infractions include failing to pass or take a drug test, failing to complete a treatment program, or failing to appear at the designated time to their probation officer.
A probation violation is a serious matter because a warrant can be issued and you can be immediately arrested.
Often the probationer will have to sit in jail waiting for their probation hearing.
If you are aware that you have violated probation or that you have a warrant for a probation violation, it is critical that you contact the Law Offices of Christopher J. Palmisano, PLC, to take action and assist you in trying to avoid being put in jail.
