Probation Violations

When a person is placed on Probation, they are required to maintain employment or attend school, regularly reporting to the probation officer, allow probation officers to conduct home visits, complete community service and make restitution payments to the victim, attend drug, alcohol or mental health treatment, refrain from using drugs or alcohol and follow curfew restrictions.  It is a violation to commit another crime.

If your probation officer believes that you have violated the terms of your probation, he or she may file a Violation of Probation petitions, requiring you to return to court and face the original sentencing judge. The judge may monitor your progress and has the ability to restore you to

Probation, but this can add additional time onto your probation term.  More concerning, the judge has the right to revoke the probation, after a probation violation hearing is completed, and resentence the probationer to jail or prison.

An experienced defense attorney can fight to keep you from being revoked from Probation.  Contact Natasha Turner DuBois, an experienced Orange County attorney based in the Hudson Valley, to find out how she can successfully defend your violation of probation case.
