Gainesville Probation Violation Attorney

The Impact of Probation Violations

Many criminal sentences do not result in serving maximum time in jail, but instead are given probation. Probation is assigned for a specified period of time and includes terms or conditions that must be followed.

If at any point during the probation, this order is ignored, refused, avoided or broken for any reason, then you may be accused or charged with a probation violation.

Probation laws fall under state and federal mandate and they may vary depending on the original offense. It may seem reasonable or even logical that circumstances forced you to violate the terms of your probation, but this is a serious offense that is not taken lightly. If you or a loved one has violated probation, you need to consult with a Gainesville criminal defense lawyer immediately.

Formal and informal probations both carry consequences if violated. If the initial probation terms are violated and you are charged as such, a new offense is added to your conviction and significant penalties may result. Additional fines may be assigned. New conditions may be placed imposed. Your probation may be extended or revoked altogether. You may even be required to serve additional jail time. There are no set rules and every consideration of your situation is made to appropriately address potential solutions.

You may be required to appear in court for a probation hearing. You do have legal rights and an experienced attorney may be able to help you make an informed decision. Kinsell Law Firm understands that your case is unique. We are here to help you defend your rights. Our goal is to help you identify the best course of action and then actively pursue a positive outcome.

"A major part of being a successful defense attorney

is knowing how to recognize the weaknesses in the State's case against your client. As a former prosecutor, I ask myself, 'Could I convict this person, and would I do it?' If you know how to successfully prosecute a case, you can then recognize the area or areas that are vulnerable to an attack."
