Probation Violations Attorney in Virginia Beach
25 Years of Demonstrated Success in Norfolk
If you have a prior conviction you most likely also are on probation. There are two types of probation in Virginia. Supervised probation means that you have a "probation officer" and you have rules called “terms and conditions”. Unsupervised probation means you have a suspended sentence for a specific amount of time, but you do not have a probation officer. If a violation occurs you could be prosecuted and convicted for a Probation Violation. This conviction would count as a new offense and any jail term that was suspended could be imposed. Violations come in many flavors. The most obvious is a conviction for a new criminal offense, but others include absconding (not meeting with your probation officer), and positive drug tests.
Often times we see clients in perpetual probation. The original conviction may be many years ago. But each time there is a violation for any minor issue the probation is reinstated and the clock restarts. It seems like probation may sometimes be a lifetime expectation.
We can help. Let’s talk about your probation. We want to know what you are on probation for, how long have you been on probation, and what is the reason for the violation. Let’s make sure that our clients don’t get “all of their time back” unless it is the only other option.
