Probation Violation Attorney in Olathe
Did you violate a term of your probation?
After being arrested, tried and sentenced, an offender may be granted probation
instead of being required to serve their time in jail or prison. This
means that they can continue their life under certain restrictions. When
a person is on probation, they are usually required to do the following
in order to avoid a probation violation:
- Report to a parole officer regularly
- Attend rehabilitation courses
- Obtain and keep a job
- Commit no subsequent crimes
Should a parolee fail to report to their officer at an arranged time, miss
required rehab classes, lose their job, or commit another crime, they
could be charged with probation violation. If convicted, they will be
required to return to jail or prison and serve the remainder of their sentence.
Probation Violation Laws in Kansas
When someone is accused of violating their probation, they will receive
a "Motion to Revoke Probation" and must reply in a timely manner
if they are to have the highest chance of a successful defense. One of
the key factors to defense in a probation violation case is to show your
willingness to cooperate. Communication and compliance could help convince
your probation officer or the court that you do not need to have your
probation revoked. If you are in such a situation, don't face the
court alone. Hire a
criminal defense attorney for the representation you need.
