Farmington Hills Probation Violation Attorney
Serving All Oakland County & Michigan
Probation is an alternative to jail time that the court will offer to both jailed defendants and defendants convicted of minor offenses. Defendants who are on probation are allowed to live at home, albeit under extremely strict requirements.
If defendants are accused of violating the terms of their probation, they’re liable to be sent to jail to serve out the rest of their sentence as originally written.
People under probation must follow the following rules to the letter:
- Restriction from possessing a firearm
- Refraining from drugs and alcohol
- Obtaining and maintaining a job
- Obeying a curfew
- Following the orders of your officer
- Strict penalties for new criminal charges
If you’ve been charged with violating the terms of your probation, do not wait to contact a Farmington Hills probation violation attorney. I, Daniel D. Hajji, Attorney at Law, have experience handling cases involving probation violations, and I’ve had great success helping my clients convince the court to let them continue serving out their probation agreement after allegedly violating the agreement.
Violating the Terms of Your Probation in Michigan
Because a probation agreement is so strict, it’s relatively easy to accidentally violate your agreement. For instance, if your phone dies while you’re away from home, you might miss a scheduled check-in with your probation officer. Falling ill and inadvertently failing to fulfill your community service could also result in probation violation charges.
Common probation violations include the following:
- Failing a drug or alcohol test
- Missing a scheduled test
- Failing to report to a probation officer
- Getting charged with a new crime
- Failing to complete conditions of probation such as counseling or community service
If you are being charged with a violation of probation and now face jail time, the last thing you should do is fail to appear at your hearing. If you fail to show up, the court will issue a bench warrant for your arrest and worsen the situation. If you need defense for a probation violation, I am ready to help you right now. Speak with me as soon as possible to continue the rest of your sentence in your own home.
