Marietta, Cobb County and Surrounding Area Probation Violations
Probation is a privilege, not an absolute right in Georgia. When even a slight misstep occurs during your probation, such as a missed appointment or payment, you may be charged with a violation that can quickly snowball into a probation revocation hearing.
Even if a miscommunication or accident leads to a probation violation, judges may be quick to punish severely. Whether you are at the beginning, middle or end of your probationary period, a judge has the right to order you to spend the rest of that time in jail. If your probation is revoked and you are forced to serve time, the fallout can be catastrophic. Not only do you risk compromising your relationships with your family and friends, you also lose your freedom and quite possibly your job in the process. It is of the utmost importance that you get legal advice from a probation revocation attorney before deciding to represent yourself in a hearing.
It is important that you contact a skilled probation revocation attorney as soon as possible to begin building a defense against the allegations you face.
