Pre-Trial Probation Violation Options in San Bernardino & Riverside
Although the possible consequences are severe, we want you know there is hope of a positive outcome. Contact our law firm as soon as you are ordered by the court to appear at a revocation hearing. We can take many steps prior to the hearing to improve your legal position, including:
- Re-establishing contact with your probation officer
- Paying fines or restitution
- Completing community service requirements
- Entering drug or alcohol treatment
In the worse case scenario, a judge will revoke probation, impose the original sentence and tack on an additional jail term. We make every attempt to avoid jail time, arguing for extended probation, electronic monitoring, community service, or other alternatives. If you or your child is charged with a new crime, we can vigorously fight that charge to minimize the impact on your probation status and any new penalties.
