Violation of Probation / Community Control
Facing a Violation of Probation or Community Control in the Tampa Bay area, could mean that you are facing up to the maximum possible jail or prison time even if you are a first time offender. Furthermore, the system provides for a much lower burden of proof for the state attorney than for the original criminal charges. This makes it even easier for the state to prove the case against you. Probation Officer will often times issue a warrant for your arrest and if arrested on the warrant, you will in many situations not be able to bond out. Furthermore, even if you were not originally convicted of the charge, the judge will have to convict you if he finds that you violated probation and revoked your probation. Given that situation, it can be hard to fight a violation of probation or community control. Therefore, it is even more important at that stage to hire an experienced criminal defense attorney as soon as possible.What The Wade Law Firm Can Do For You?
