Probation Violation Charge? Protect, Defend, Strategize with Probation Violation Attorney Marcy Fassio in OKC!
Are you being charged with violating your probation? Probation violation is a serious offense that could land you in jail for the remainder of your probation term, if not longer. A highly skilled defense will be needed if your probation officer brings these allegations forward. A probation violation can simply be the result of not following court rules in regards to your probation.
The formal name for a probation violation is an Application/Motion to Accelerate (if you are on a deferred sentence probation) or an Application/Motion to Revoke (if you are on a suspended sentence probation). Either way, this means the District Attorney has filed formal paperwork accusing you of violating your probation. If found guilty, you could go to prison!
Get in front of the problem by hiring Fassio Law to defend you in Court!
What are some of the ways you can end up with a probation violation charge?
- Not appearing for scheduled probation appointments;
- Failing to keep in contact with your probation officer;
- Failing to complete your probation requirements (classes, community service, etc);
- Getting arrested for another offense;
- Visiting other states or traveling without the consent of your probation officer;
- Illegal possession of a weapon;
- Not paying restitution, court costs, probation fees, or other monies owed; or
- Testing positive for drugs.
If your probation officer issues a violation report, informing the Court or the District Attorney that they believe you have violated the terms of your probation, you could be facing jail time and/or having your probation accelerated or revoked!
If you are on a deferred sentence, and your probation is accelerated, that means you will lose your deferred sentence and be convicted. If you are able to remain on a deferred sentence, you may be able to have the charge dismissed and expunged (cleared off your record) once you complete the probation term. So you definitely do not want to lose your deferred sentence. Even worse, you could be accelerated, convicted, and sentenced to serve time in prison.
If you are on a suspended sentence, and your probation is revoked, you will be sent to prison. Don’t make the mistake of not having excellent legal representation! Call OKC Probation Defense Attorney Marcy Fassio at (405) 593-8444 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
