Fishers Probation & Parole Violations Lawyerundefined

Have You Been Accused of Violating the Terms of Your Parole or Probation?

Probation is a period of supervision that some criminal defendants are offered as an alternative to incarceration. Parole is similar, except that it supervises people who were already in prison and were released early. If you are under probation or parole, you no doubt know that the consequences for violating these terms are very serious.

What You Can Do For Your Defense

When arrested for a parole or probation violation, the courts can send you jail or prison immediately after a hearing. You do not have the right to a trial in these situations. As far as the court is concerned, you are already guilty of the original crime and breaking any rules for release is grounds for incarceration. However, this does not mean that you cannot make your case in court.

Probation and parole violations are strict, and it can be easy to violate them through simple oversight. While judges do not overlook mistakes, most do understand them. What you have to do now is prove to the judge that you do take your parole/probation seriously and that the violation was an unfortunate mistake.

There are several things you can do to show the judge you are taking this seriously:

  • Hire a lawyer. Going to court without an attorney gives the impression that you don’t think you can make your case. If you don’t believe you deserve to continue your parole or probation, the judge won’t either.
  • Dress nicely. Dressing for the occasion demonstrates that you realize the importance of this hearing.
  • Be receptive to their advice. If you violated your parole because you tested positive for alcohol or drugs, let the judge know you are willing to attend AA meetings or counseling if they bring it up.
  • Be on time. This is not a situation where you want to show up late.

It is important that you discuss your situation with your attorney. There aren’t many legal strategies that can protect you if you violate parole or probation, we have to build a defense based on your specific situation and willingness to cooperate. You and your attorney should discuss what you will say and how you will act before the hearing.

Call our Fisher probation/parole violation attorneys as soon as you find out you have been accused of violating the terms of your relief. You can reach Massillamany Jeter & Carson LLP at (317) 434-1490.
