In Los Angeles, anyone that does not comply with a term of his or her probation can be found in violation of probation. It is extremely important to speak with a Los Angeles criminal defense attorney immediately if you have been charged with probation violation. A skilled attorney may be able to keep you out of jail.
If you do not hire an attorney to defend your rights in court you may be forced to serve your original jail sentence. Failure to appear for a scheduled meeting with a probation officer is considered a serious probation violation and may be punished severely depending on the original crime committed. Failing to uphold any requirement of probation can be disastrous, including failing to fulfill your court ordered treatment program, pay fines or other probation terms.
Our legal team understands what is at stake and will take aggressive action to fight to keep you from having to serve jail time or face additional punishment.
