Did You Violate Your Probation?
By Daniel T. Geherin
A violation of probation can be earth-shattering. Judges can revoke your probation and sentence you to the maximum jail or prison sentence (and perhaps enter the conviction if under a deferred sentence). Judges can reinstate probation and impose some incarceration. Best-case scenario, judges can issue a warning and reinstate your probation.
What constitutes a violation? Failure to do the things the judge ordered, doing what the judge prohibited, or being arrested for a new criminal offense while on probation. Those people who are charged with a probation violation (often called a Show-Cause), definitely should consider contacting an attorney.

"I have had limited interface with the legal system previously, but what I had prior to Dan was largely negative. Dan was completely opposite. He took time to explain what was happening, was willing to answer my questions, and helped me clearly navigate through the legal process. Certainly happy and beyond satisfied with my choice of hiring him as an attorney." - Spencer H.
