Accused of Violating Your Probation?
Call an Atlanta Criminal Defense Attorney
Those who are given probation are usually given this in lieu of a much harsher punishment, e.g. incarceration. For those under probation, major scrutiny is given to all of their actions and some rights may either be restricted or even taken away altogether.
Every individual who is given probation as a punishment must follow the terms as ordered by the courts. As an example, you can be found in violation if you fail to attend meetings with your probation officer. Another example is if a restraining order has been placed against you, and you visit the individuals or area where you are restricted, that is also considered a violation.
Fortunately, being accused of violating your probation is defensible, with the right attorney. Work with The Law Offices of Howard J. Weintraub, P.C. to get premier defense now!
