Orlando Probation Violations Attorney

Whitney S. Boan Protecting Your Right

Having served time for your previous conviction, it’s very common that you move into a probationary period. During this time, you are closely supervised, and are required to report back to your officer on a timetable that is predetermined. As a result, any breach of your probation is viewed with extreme scrutiny and can hurt your future more severely than it already has been. Obviously the first defense to preventing violation is to do strictly what you are told. However, should you be seeking representation after already infringing on your probation, you will need an experienced criminal lawyer who has experience with both your original case, and the one that you’re being scrutinized for currently.

At Whitney S. Boan, P.A. in Orlando, FL, your needs take a priority. Your case is serious to us, and as a result we are here for you when you need us. All you need to do is call: (407) 413-9569

What are ways you can violate your probation?

Every situation is unique, and as such the requirements of your probation are as well. Despite this, failing to report back to your officer on time and having repeated incidents of this is considered a grave offense. Similarly, if you do report back, but fail to pass the tests or fail to accomplish a particular requirement, then you will also be found in the wrong. Lastly, and perhaps the strongest of all, is committing another crime while atoning for another. If you are found either aiding in a crime, or convicting one yourself, especially if it’s the same your previous conviction, then you will have to face very serious repercussions.

What defense can you get?

As mentioned, in your situation, you’re likely under extreme scrutiny because you’re already a convicted criminal. Because of this, there’s a particular no tolerance to any action that you make, and bias can take hold. An experienced attorney like Whitney S. Boan is capable of looking at your previous record and what happened during the course of your probation to see if you are in fact in the wrong, or if your officer is turning a blind eye. While it’s not easy to defend, it’s very possible to have your charges reduced to a manageable level, or have them removed altogether. Rather than seeing additional jail time, it’s very likely that you may see increased probationary period, or requirement to enter into a rehabilitation program. These are significantly less punishments, and can help to make your future a lot easier to see.

These cases do not involve a jury unless there’s a serious crime committed during probation, but that doesn’t mean you don’t need proper representation. An experienced attorney will be able to protect your interests in the face of the judge and the legal system. These are very fast cases, so make sure that you have the best behind you. Whitney S. Boan can bring her experience to help you, and protect your future. Don’t let your record be blemished more than it already has.
