NEW JERSEY PAROLE VIOLATION LAWYER – PROBATION VIOLATION ATTORNEY
When someone is convicted of a crime, probation is a very often a part of the sentence. Individuals are often required to go on probation instead of going to jail or prison. If you are on probation, you will be supervised by a probation officer. As part of your probation, you will be required to comply with a number of rules. If you are accused of violating the terms of your probation, you face the potential of going to prison. Any number of actions could lead to a violation of probation, including:
- Failing to report to your probation officer
- Failing a drug test
- Failing to perform part of your sentence (community service, restitution, anger management classes, etc.)
If you have been accused of violating your probation, you need experienced legal counsel on your side. Many judges take a very dim view of a probation or parole violation. You face the prospect of incarceration. Maynard Law Office, LLC, serves individuals throughout Morris County and the surrounding areas. We welcome the opportunity to evaluate your case and point the way to the strongest defense. We defend people accused of both probation and parole violations.
In Violation of Probation (VOP) hearings, you do not have some of the same rights you initially enjoyed as a criminal defendant. For example, you do not have the right to a jury trial, and you do not have the right to be found guilty beyond a reasonable doubt.
We will take a proactive approach to your defense. If you have been accused of a technical violation, we will advise you of ways to comply with the terms of your probation or parole as quickly as possible. We will talk to your probation or parole officer and try to negotiate some kind of agreement that keeps you out of prison.
