Defending Against Probation Violation Allegations
There are many reasons probation can be revoked. Some of the most common probation violations include:
- Failing a drug or alcohol test
- Failing to pay fines
- Failing to report to a probation officer
- Getting charged with a new crime
- Associating with certain individuals
- Failing to perform community service
In defending against probation violation accusations, it is important to thoroughly investigate the circumstances of the probation and of the alleged violation. If there was a compelling reason you could not fulfill some aspect of your probation, the court may show leniency.
Some alleged violations are the result of misunderstandings. In some cases, the facts are simply wrong, and there was no violation at all.
Whatever the circumstances of your case, we are prepared to help. Criminal defense lawyer Philip Kim has an in-depth understanding of Georgia probation laws and can provide you with the guidance and advocacy you need.
