Probation Violations: Too Serious to Ignore

Posted by Dmitry Gorin | Oct 22, 2008 | 0 Comments

Los Angeles criminal defense attorneys can have real challenges when it comes to probation, in part because not all defendants understand the terms of their probation, or care enough to take it seriously. Probation is a serious matter, and not following the terms of probation properly, even on the smallest matters, can lead to further arrests, fines and even jail time.Judges in the Los Angeles criminal courts take probation seriously, and any probation violations will be met with often swift punishment. Probation violation occurs when a person fails to adhere to the terms of his/her probation. When a person does not comply with the terms of his/her probation, he/she may be punished with the maximum sentence for the crime in which he/she was placed on probation for committing.In such a case, only skilled Los Angeles criminal defense attorneys understand how to work with a judge and the prosecutor to get the best possible results for the defendant.After a person is placed on probation, he/she is allowed to return to his/her home environment instead of jail. In order for a person to successfully complete the terms of his/her probation, he/she must follow the rules that were set forth by the court at the time he/she was sentenced. Once a person has been placed on probation, he/she may have to report to a corrections officer on a regular basis, or complete community service activities. If a person fails to complete the terms of his/her probation, he/she can be charged with probation violation by California law enforcement.A probation violation doesn't have to mean a rich defendant fleeing the country during a murder trial. As any Los Angeles criminal defense lawyer will tell you, the charges can be simple. Recently, Michelle Rodriguez failed to fulfill the terms of her probation in a DUI case and faced jail time in Los Angeles as a result. She was actually shooting scenes for a television show during the process. Country singer Mindy McCready surrendered to authorities and served a 60-day sentence for violating her probation on a 2004 drug charge.
