Why You May Need a Probation Violation Lawyer in Scottsdale?

Any Court can impose probation terms in a criminal sentence. The length of probation varies, depending upon the nature of the crime. Probation can include specific rules and terms, and can include restrictions on who you can associate with, on your ability to travel out of the state, on your use of alcohol and on your possession of firearms. Probation can require you to test for drugs and / or alcohol, attend counseling, perform community service, pay fines, pay restitution and report to a probation officer. Failure to abide any of these probation requirements will result in a probation violation.

A petition to revoke probation may be filed and you could be arrested for violating the terms of your probation. The Court can order that you held in custody while awaiting the resolution of the violation. At sentencing the Court can impose harsher probation terms or even require you to serve more jail or prison time. This is a very dangerous situation that requires a skilled Criminal Defense Attorney to assist you in getting this issue solved.

A Criminal Defense Attorney can also assist in modifying a term of probation based upon the circumstances of your case. If you seek to reduce the term of the probation, request an early release, or even modify one of the restrictive terms of supervision, a request can be made with the Court for such a modification.
