Beverly Hills Probation Violation Lawyer

Receiving probation instead of another sentence is considered to be a privilege in the eyes of the law. Judges do not take it kindly when probation is violated, as it’s seen as a slight to their imposition of a “lighter sentence.” When you’ve been accused of a probation violation, you need an experienced and committed attorney to be on your side.

Initial Violation in Beverly Hills, MI

The beginning of a probation violation charge comes from your probation officer finding out that you’ve supposedly violated a term of your probation. Examples of this include failing a drug test, failure to report for an appointment, leaving the county without permission, failing to pay fines or restitution, and incomplete community service. The probation officer notifies the court, at which time you’ll be warranted for arrest or ordered to appear before the judge. No matter what, you will go in front of the judge, and they will determine whether you can be released on bond and the terms of your bond.

Violation Hearing in Beverly Hills, Michigan

Next, your case will be scheduled for a violation hearing. There will be prosecution and defense, like a regular trial, and both sides have the ability to call and cross-examine witnesses. Unlike a regular trial, a judge will decide your fate instead of a jury. The burden of proof for your case will also be “preponderance of evidence” instead of “beyond a reasonable doubt.” The judge can decide if there is a significant chance, more likely than not, that you committed the violation, you can be found guilty.

Sentencing in Beverly Hills

If you’re found guilty, or if you take a plea deal, the judge has a few different ways they can sentence you. A few of the options include continuing probation, modifying the terms of probation, extending the probation, and revoking the probation. In felony cases, the judge has the option of sending you to prison.
