probation/parole violations Archives

Probation violations need firm defenses before the judge

Probation is a serious program that has strict restrictions for what you can and can't do. When you don't comply with the terms of the program, you can face a probation violation. This can mean that you have to stand before a judge. The judge will decide if you are guilty of the probation violation or not.

What constitutes a probation violation?

When a defendant is on probation, perhaps one of their biggest fears is being sent back to spend more time in a jail cell. Therefore, when accused of having violated the terms of their probation, there's no wonder that a defendant might be concerned about just how the alleged violation might impact their life.

Criminal defense matters require a well-rounded plan

We recently discussed what constitutes a probation violation. This is one aspect of the criminal justice system that many people don't think about. When you are charged with a crime, you might be able to avoid jail time upon conviction by being placed on probation. While this might seem like an easy way to resolve the case, you must take probation very seriously.

Carefully plan your violation defense since it is a bench trial

We recently discussed the case of the Seacoast woman who was guilty of 12 parole violations. This case is one of the prime examples of why you should carefully follow your parole plan if you are subject to one. Even a probation plan should be followed exactly as it is written because you can face charges for violating probation or parole if you are supposed to comply with one of these programs and don't.

A Seacost woman is convicted in 12 parole violations

A 47-year-old Seacost woman, who had recently garnered a spot in the country's Most Wanted Fugitive list, was found guilty Wednesday, Jan. 11, 2017, of 12 different parole violations. The hearing took place at the U.S. District Court of New Hampshire in Concord in front of Judge Paul Barbadoro.

Probation and parole violations can derail your life

Probation and parole are very strict programs that must be successfully completed if the person doesn't want to have to spend the rest of their sentence in prison. The close monitoring is necessary so that the person can remain in society. Unfortunately, it is sometimes difficult for a person to comply with all of the conditions and they will face a violation.  

Probation and parole have specific requirements

People who are convicted of crimes will sometimes be sentenced to probation, which is a monitoring program that enables them to remain in the community while they serve their sentence. Others will be incarcerated upon conviction, but if they behave while they are in prison, they might be able to be released on parole. Just like probation, parole enables them to remain in the community while they finish out their sentence as long as they abide by the rules of the program.

Facing a probation violation? Contact a criminal defense attorney

In Derry and elsewhere in New Hampshire, a sentence for a criminal offense often includes a period of probation. The terms of that probation depend on many factors, and failing to comply with them could result in a violation. What happens next can vary from person to person, but anyone facing a probation violation should contact a criminal defense attorney as soon as possible.
