Violations of Probation (VOP)
Probation Violations Attorney in West Palm Beach, Florida
Everyone makes mistakes, and if one of yours has resulted in a violation of your probation (VOP), you need an attorney to untangle the legal issues and defend your rights. Call the Law Offices of Richard W. Springer, P.A. at 561-291-8102 for the guidance you need. Their experienced attorneys are familiar with defending people facing VOP charges, and they will assist you with the right solutions and legal services.
If you have not complied with one of the requirements of your negotiated plea or from the sentence you received following a trial, your probation may be revoked and you will most likely receive a more severe sentence.
The best advice: hire a qualified attorney
The first order of business will be to monitor any warrants you may have that affect your probation since almost all violation of probation arrest warrants are issued with no bond and the defense attorney must have the warrant recalled or schedule an immediate hearing to seek your release on bond. Violations of probation may include being arrested and charged for some criminal offense while on probation, lying to your probation officer about an arrest, leaving your prescribed area when you are under house arrest, consorting with criminals, violating a technical term or condition of your probation or using drugs or alcohol and getting a positive reading on a substance test. You must address these warrants or you will likely receive jail time and a harsher sentence than the one originally imposed.
With all the complications in our legal system and process, the best advice is to secure the services of an experienced criminal defense attorney who is familiar with all the details of the law, particularly as they affect probation.
