Probation Violation? I Will Work To Keep You Out Of Jail.

Probation, house arrest and other alternatives to a jail sentence are undoubtedly preferable to going to jail. This does not mean, however, that they are easy. There are terms you must meet such as being employed, staying sober, meeting with your probation officer and obeying the law. Many people find it difficult to meet all of the requirements.

If you are accused of violating your probation or failing to complete community supervision in the Nashville area, speak with an attorney as soon as possible. The consequences of probation violations in Tennessee can include penalties such as going to jail for the sentence you would have received for the charge. Or you may have more time added to your probation.

What happens to you after a probation violation can depend on whether you have smart defense representation. I have experience helping people in this situation stay out of jail. When you hire me, I will start to work immediately to find alternatives to jail time, including investigating:

  • Whether you understood the specific conditions of your probation
  • Whether you were aware you were violating the conditions
  • Whether there were circumstances beyond your control that led to the violation
  • Whether there are alternatives to criminal charges

Was Your Probation Violation Because Of Drug Or Alcohol Abuse?

Drug or alcohol addiction may lead to probation violations. If you belong in treatment, I will work with the probation officer and court to determine whether a treatment program may be available instead of a jail sentence.
