Call our team today to schedule a free consultation about how to avoid further, more serious consequences.
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.
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.
