Lawrenceville Probation Violation Lawyer
Violations of Probation in Gwinnett County
A probation violation occurs when a defendant has not followed the requirements of a court sentence or a plea negotiated with the prosecution. The prosecutor can petition to revoke probation based on a defendant’s failure to comply with the conditions of a sentence or plea agreement, resulting in a new sentence with potentially far more severe penalties.
There are a number of probation violations that can occur, the most obvious of which would be committing another criminal act. There are also a number of technical violations a parole officer may accuse you of, ranging from failing to report for a scheduled visit to failing to report an address change. Technical violations are not as serious, but can still cost you your probation depending upon your history of violations, the original crime, or whether or not the violation was early or later in the term of the probation.
