Why Was Your Probation Revoked?

Whatever the reason for the motion to revoke your parole or probation, our firm will be there to represent you. There are many reasons why a person’s parole or probation may be revoked.

These may include:

  • You failed to remain in contact with your probation or parole officer
  • You failed a drug test or alcohol test
  • You failed to complete your community service hours
  • You failed to pay a fine or restitution
  • You are accused of a new offense

In probation and parole violations, the State has a lower burden of proof. It is easier for them to convict you. Unlike in a criminal trial where the State must prove your crime beyond a reasonable doubt, your probation revocation hearing only requires proof through the preponderance of the evidence—a standard that requires less convincing evidence.

What Does A Parole Lawyer Do?

A parole lawyer specializes in representing individuals who are seeking parole or facing parole-related issues. Parole is the supervised release of a prisoner before the completion of their sentence, subject to certain conditions and under the supervision of a parole officer. Parole lawyers help clients navigate the parole process and advocate for their interests before parole boards or other relevant authorities.

Here are some common tasks and responsibilities of parole lawyers:

  • Parole eligibility assessment: Parole lawyers review their clients' cases to determine their eligibility for parole based on factors such as the nature of the offense, the length of the sentence served, the inmate's behavior in prison, and other relevant criteria.
  • Preparation for parole hearings: Parole lawyers prepare their clients for parole hearings by advising them on how to present themselves, gathering evidence of their rehabilitation and readiness for release, and developing a strategy to make a compelling case for parole.
  • Representation at parole hearings: Parole lawyers represent their clients at parole hearings, presenting evidence and arguments in support of their clients' release on parole. They advocate for their clients' suitability for parole and address any concerns raised by the parole board.
  • Advocacy for parole approval: Parole lawyers advocate for their clients' interests before the parole board, emphasizing factors such as their clients' rehabilitation efforts, participation in programs aimed at reducing recidivism, and plans for successful reintegration into society.
  • Post-parole issues: Parole lawyers may also assist clients with post-parole issues, such as compliance with parole conditions, addressing parole violations, and seeking early termination of parole supervision.

Overall, parole lawyers play a crucial role in helping individuals navigate the parole process and work towards successful reintegration into society after serving a portion of their sentence. They advocate for their clients' rights and interests throughout the parole process, aiming to secure their clients' release on parole and support their successful transition back into the community.

How We Can Help

Under Georgia law, probation and parole are regarded as a privilege, not a right. However, the risk of imprisonment on a probation or parole violation usually only comes up if you are accused of violating a condition of probation or parole, or you are arrested for a new offense. If you find yourself in either situation, contact us about your legal options and to minimize the possibility of prison.

If you’ve been accused of violating your probation or parole, or you believe there may be a warrant out for your arrest, contact Crawford and Boyle, LLC, today and let us defend your case. We can go over the charges against you to help you plan an effective defense for your situation.
