Seek Legal Help Handling Probation Violations in Lancaster
Probation is used as a penalty for many different criminal charges in California. Sometimes, probation is used in addition to or instead of fines and time in jail or prison. You serve probation time outside of jail or prison. However, while on probation you are required to obey the provisions set by the court.
You can face additional charges if you violate probation. If you are accused of a probation violation, you should reach out to a lawyer right away for help. Members of our team will support you in and out of court.
We Can Help You Handle a Warrant
After you are accused of violating your probation, the court can issue a warrant for your arrest. You should contact a lawyer as soon as you can. The lawyer can then assess the alleged infraction.
Our team can take steps to gather evidence to show that you did not violate your probation. We can use this information at your probation hearing. You should know that a probation hearing does not involve a jury. Instead, a judge will listen to the allegations and allow your lawyer to speak.
Depending on the results of a probation hearing, you could lose your probation. You could also face increased penalties or a lengthened period of probation. Our team works to resolve this hearing in your favor. This can help you keep your current status.
How Expungement Works
Many individuals convicted of a crime in Lancaster are interested in getting their charges expunged. Expungement removes a charge from your criminal record. However, you can only get a charge expunged if you’ve met the requirements of your conviction.
You cannot seek expungement of your charges while on probation. You must finish your full period of probation to begin the expungement process. Having your probationary period extended due to a violation can increase the amount of time it takes to have your charges expunged.
We can help you fight for your charges to be set aside after your probationary period is complete. Find out more about your legal options by contacting us right now.
