Probation Violations Are Very Serious
You should take probation violations seriously. The court can order your arrest if you are accused of violating misdemeanor or felony probation. This means police officers can arrest you at any time and bring you to court, per Penal Code §1203.2.
Note that probation violation hearings are not handled in quite the same way as a criminal trial. Generally, these hearings are handled by a judge and without a jury. The judge will decide whether you violated your probation or not.
If the judge decides you did violate probation, you can face more severe penalties. Some common results of a probation violation in El Monte include:
- Harsher terms for your probation
- A longer period of time on probation
- Revocation of probation leading to jail or prison time
Our probation violations lawyers can help you handle a probation violation hearing so you don’t have to go it alone.
Criminal Charges and Probation Violations
We are prepared to help you deal with misdemeanor or felony charges. In some situations, we can get new charges dismissed. You should not face a probation violation if the charges you are facing were set aside by the court. However, if the court will not dismiss criminal charges, we could then work to get the charges reduced to an acceptable level.
