Augusta Probation Revocation Lawyers
Individuals on probation can be misinformed or unaware of certain conditions of their parole. If you have violated parole, you are probably wondering what happens next. Do I get a second chance? Do I go straight to jail? Unfortunately, a probation violation can mean your parole gets revoked by the judge. Your parole officer will likely issue a bench warrant for your arrest and petition for a probation revocation hearing. In some cases, depending on your record, a judge will sentence you for the remainder of your time in jail. Having an aggressive and highly skilled criminal defense attorney at your side can help you avoid probation revocation and jail time.
