Gainesville / Hall County Probation Revocations

Posted by Richard Lawson | May 11, 2011 | 0 Comments

Do you have a friend or family member facing a probation revocation hearing?  Attorneys at the Law Offices of Hall County defense lawyer Richard Lawson can help.  Probation officers frequently charge their probationers with violations of probation.  Probation violations come in two varieties - technical offenses and new charges.  A technical violation of probation occurs when someone violates their probation by getting behind on their payment of fines, court costs, probation supervision fees, or restitution.  It can also occur if a probationer falls behind on their community service or does not comply with recommended counseling.  Another common way for a technical probation violation to occur is if the probationer fails to report to their probation officer or misses or tests dirty at a drug screen.  Complying with the many requirements of probation is difficult and often times sets a Hall County probationer up for failure. 

The second, and usually more serious way for ones probation to be violated, is by the committing of a new offense.  It is never good to break the law, but when you are on probation, in addition to getting charged with the new crime or traffic violation, you are also charged with a violation of probation.  This can lead to a person being revoked to jail or prison or losing their first offender status. 

If you or a friend is facing a probation revocation in the Hall County area, an experienced attorney can help.  Call attorney Richard Lawson today to discuss the options during a free consultation.
