New York City Criminal Attorneys Can Defend Your Probation Violations
If you are on probation or have been accused of a probation violation, you need an attorney who is experienced in handling these types of cases. Probation is a period of time where an individual convicted of a crime proves their ability to meet the court’s agreed-upon terms and act as a responsible citizen. Probation can be informal or formal. Some probation periods require regular meetings with a probation officer. The terms of each person’s probation are set by the judge and usually have stipulations regarding the original offense. For example, an individual charged with drug possession could be asked to submit to weekly or random drug tests. Individuals on probation may be required to register when they change addresses, and submit to other types of meetings, rehabilitation for addiction, or other stipulation. Probation can be a singular sentence in lieu of some other form of punishment, such as jail time or fines, or it can be used in conjunction with another type of penalty.
Probation Attorneys in NYC Can Help You Get Probation Instead of Jail Time
Probation is one of the options we use when negotiating with the prosecution to get a plea bargain for our clients. Our NYC defense attorneys have an excellent track record in being able to negotiate probation instead of incarceration. Most courts agree to probation, because any probation violations will result in a prison term, anyway, which gives the courts the ability to see how the defendant would act if they were given a “second chance.” As defense attorneys, we are glad to see our clients get probation instead of jail time. We not only feel as though we have managed to get a favorable outcome in the case, but we feel as though our client has the opportunity to turn their life around and be successful by properly completing their probation. If you have been charged with a crime, our attorneys will work diligently to try to get probation as an option in your New York criminal case.
