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.
Everyone makes mistakes. How you handle those mistakes is something that is very important. When it comes to probation and parole violations, you should probably handle the mistakes you made by seeking the advice of a lawyer.
Generally, probation and parole violations are handled in bench trials. This means that you won’t sit before a jury that determines your fate. Instead, your fate is strictly in the judge’s hands. This means that you need to plan your defense on the basis of legal arguments instead of on emotional ties to the jury or probabilities.
