Probation Violations

Don’t Let Your Criminal Matter Take A Step Backward

If you are convicted of a probation violation, you will likely lose all the advantages you had when you were granted probation in place of jail time. You will likely go to jail, your criminal record will be affected, and you may owe fines and face other penalties.

For these and other reasons, you owe it to yourself to seek out the most aggressive defense on your behalf if you have been accused of violating probation. Do not give up and consider your case hopeless before you receive legal counsel from an experienced attorney. The Law Office of Scott N. Richardson, P.A., has obtained favorable outcomes for many clients accused of probation and parole violations.

What Defense Strategy Will Work For You?

A variety of situations can lead to probation violation charges. The court may claim that you:

  • Did not report it to your probation officer as required
  • Did not inform the court of your change of address as required
  • Committed an infraction of the terms of probation — such as contacting someone you were not allowed to contact, or consuming alcohol or drugs.

Whatever triggered the accusation of a probation violation, attorney Scott N. Richardson is prepared to analyze your case in great detail, searching for the key to your defense. With more than 40 years of experience, Mr. Richardson has gotten such charges dismissed for high-profile individuals as well as for people from all walks of life. Successful defenses have included proof that a defendant was not properly informed of appointments by the court; proof that the alleged infraction did not occur; and evidence that a defendant was incapacitated for legitimate reasons and deserves another chance. These are a few examples. Arguments like these may or may not be sufficient in your case. A review by Mr. Richardson will uncover key facts relevant for your defense.

Stay Out Of Jail And Keep The Original Offense Off Your Record If At All Possible

Do not delay if you have been arrested or even if you have simply been told by a probation officer that you did something wrong. Call 561-471-9600 or inquire here to request your consultation with an accomplished Florida defense attorney.
