Probation Violations

Phoenix Probation Violation Attorneys

Accused of Violating the Terms of Your Probation?

If an individual has been sentenced for a specific crime and is serving probation in Arizona, it is imperative that he or she fully abides by the terms set forth by the court. If not, their probation officer can file a “Petition to Revoke Probation” and issue a warrant for the person’s arrest. Once they have been arrested, they may be held “non bondable” until their probation violation is resolved in court, which means that they cannot be released from jail until the judge has made their decision.

Why You Should Call Suzuki Law Offices Right Away

Have you been accused of violating the terms of your probation? Probation violations are taken seriously by Arizona courts, which is why it is in your best interests to contact Suzuki Law Offices, L.L.C. as soon as possible.

Common Probation Violations & Their Penalties

In Arizona, common punishments for those found guilty of a probation violation may include an extension of the probationary period, revocation of probation, counseling or treatment programs, physical labor, jail or prison time, and more.

An individual can be found guilty of violating the terms of their probation for:

  • Possessing an illegal weapon or substance
  • Committing another crime while on probation
  • Missing a scheduled appearance in court
  • Failing to pay restitution or attend counseling
  • Failing to check in with a probation officer
  • Violating any specific terms of their probation

Unlike criminal cases, prosecutors only have to prove a probation violation by a preponderance of evidence – a much lower standard than proof "beyond a reasonable doubt." Furthermore, the decision is left to the judge alone to make. That is why it is extremely important to get in touch with an experienced Phoenix criminal defense lawyer as soon as possible.
