Probation Revocation

If you were convicted of a crime but given probation instead of a jail sentence, you signed an agreement to follow the rules set by the judge. If you break any of those rules or are convicted of another crime, you could be facing probation revocation.

The violation could be anything from being found to own a gun to missing a meeting with a probation officer to getting behind on child support payments. If the violation is severe or happens multiple times, the prosecutor could ask the judge to take away your probation. The judge could then make you serve the jail term you were originally sentenced to.

Avoiding any bad outcomes usually requires the services of a trusted attorney. The hearing for probation revocation is a complex process quite different from the trial experience you may be familiar with. An experienced probation violations lawyer like me can prepare you for the hearing, protect your rights and act on your behalf. That may include locating witnesses for you, challenging the state's evidence of your alleged violation and cross-examining the prosecution's witnesses.

I'll work hard to win the hearing for you and have the motion to revoke dismissed. If your probation is revoked, I will work just as hard to help you avoid jail time. For example, I may be able to persuade the judge that imposing community service, drug or alcohol treatment or another fine will be enough.

If you are being threatened with losing your probation, it is important to contact me at Carl Henry Franklin, Attorney at Law, in Shreveport, Louisiana, by calling toll free at 866-409-3921. I will meet with you personally, in jail if necessary, for a free initial consultation on your case.
