Schaumburg Probation Violation Lawyer
Chicago, Schaumburg, and Wheaton Parole Violation Lawyer
When you are given probation, you must follow the court’s specific terms and conditions of your sentence. Probation is an alternative to jail or prison confinement, but you are still under the jurisdiction of the court. When you violate any of the terms or conditions of your probation sentence, you risk the court removing your probation and sentencing you to a state prison.
Probation violation charges must be handled delicately. The state does not have to prove beyond a reasonable doubt that you violated probation. The state only has to show there is a preponderance of evidence — or enough evidence — of your violation.
Were you late paying a court fine or fee? Did you fail to complete community service? Did you not complete substance abuse treatment? Did you get arrested for a new offense and now you face a probation violation? Call us today in Chicago at 312-421-8820, Schaumburg at 847-685-6000, or our Wheaton office at 630-573-8500. We can help protect your rights and future.
