Probation Violations in Virginia
Richmond Probation Violation Lawyer
Probation is basically a sentence ordered by a judge that allows you to serve part or perhaps your entire sentence in the community so long as you meet the conditions of probation. If you have been accused of violating your probation you are at risk of probation revocation which means you could be ordered to complete your sentence in either jail or prison. Probation violations are treated very seriously by the courts as they often view a probation violation as a violation of the court's trust. Whether you are on probation for a drug crime,
white collar crime or any other crime, if you violate probation you may be facing incarceration or more strict probation conditions that can hamper your day to day life as well as your ability to make the most of your second chance. The Law Office of James A. Bullard Jr. P.C. understands what you are facing and we will vigorously fight to protect your freedom and your future.
Types of Probation Violations
Probation violations vary in severity. Obviously, if you commit another crime while on probation it is unlikely the courts will show any leniency when considering punishment. Other probation violations that can threaten you current probationary status may include:
- A failed drug or alcohol test
- Failure to attend court-ordered counseling
- Failure to complete your community service
- Failure to meet with your probation officer
