Probation Violations Are Fairly Common
The fact is that probation violations have become a common problem in all St. Louis area courts. Many times the conditions of a probation are designed so that the individual on probation is destined to violate. Take for example the drug court programs in the city of St. Louis. Defendants find themselves having to meet very stringent obligations under the probation terms. Unfortunately, many participants are unwilling or unable to meet such difficult commitments. If this is you, know that you don’t have to go through this process alone. Call Combs Law Group today and we’ll work to maintain your probation terms and minimize the impact of your violation.
Probation Violations To Watch out For
It’s really important for you to initially meet with your probation officer and get your probation terms in writing. That way you know exactly what you’re obligated to do under the agreement with the court. In many cases, we’ve found that defendants aren’t even aware of the probation stipulation that they’ve violated. If you aren’t aware of the conditions of your probation then it’s hard to avoid a violation. Therefore, we stress to our clients on probation, the importance of learning the conditions of their probation. Next, it’s important to walk a straight line and avoid any additional charges during the probation period. If you’re able to do that then there’s even a possibility that you could seek an early termination of your probation. We’ve helped many clients go through the process of requesting early termination of their probation. If you feel like you might be eligible give us call and we’ll gladly provide a free assessment of your particular case.
