Warrants & Probation Violations

Probation is a promise to live according to a set of terms and conditions, as an alternative to confinement, for non violent crimes, for a specific period of time. Breaking any condition of a probation or legal laws may be considered a violation.

Judges under the right circumstances and right defense can choose to give second chances, and keep the original terms intact. Skilled attorneys are experienced in criminal probation law and will argue against revocation or a modification.
