State and Federal Probation Violations | Asheville, NC Criminal Defense Attorney

If you are convicted of a crime, the judge may impose a suspended sentence or place you on supervised or unsupervised probation. Other requirements are usually imposed, such as participation in drug tests, payment of restitution, required community service, and a requirement that you violate no laws, among other restrictions. If you violate the terms of your probation, it can be revoked and you can wind up in jail. The problem is that even the smallest of infractions can lead to a violation of the conditions of your probation. The most important thing is to stay out of jail.

If you have been brought before the court on a probation violation, you are entitled to have representation by a qualified criminal defense lawyer. Because you may be facing jail time or other serious consequences, you need the protection of legal counsel. Tony Rollman provides free legal consultations on all criminal defense matters.
