Dunwoody Probation Problems

Posted by Richard Lawson | Jun 07, 2011 | 0 Comments

If you (or a friend or family member) had been convicted of a DUI, possession, or theft case in the city of Dunwoody, then you are very likely on probation.  Probation can be tough and people often end up in jail as a result of probation violations.  Many Dunwoody area probation officers and prosecuting attorneys give people unrealistic fines and monies that need to be paid.  If you cannot pay these fines and fees and get behind, the probation officer may violate you.  A violation of probation usually means jail time, and can mean jail time up to the remainder of time you have remaining on your probation sentence. 

The worse kind of probation violations are when someone breaks a Georgia law i.e. commits a new offense.  These will almost certainly lead to the Dunwoody PO filing a violation of probation.  This can be terrible as individuals can lose their job, home, car, etc. if they have to spend even a few days in jail.  Nevertheless, probation officers in the Dunwoody area put warrants out for probationers arrest all the time. 

If you are having difficulty with your probation or are currently facing a violation of your probation or probation revocation hearing, call a Dunwoody lawyer as soon as possible for a consultation.  The consequences of a violation of probation are very serious.  There are however, many defenses that can be used to get you reinstated on your probation and to minimize and possible jail or prison time.  Call experienced probation violation attorney Richard Lawson today to discuss your case.
