Violating Your Probation Can Mean Severe Ramifications
Parole or probation violations can happen for a multitude of reasons. Maybe you made a simple mistake, or an accidental miscommunication found you outside of your probation terms.

If you are facing a probation violation, you cannot afford a weak defense. At my practice, the Law Offices of Walter L.

Minimizing the impact of a probation violation can be challenging, and a seasoned attorney such as myself can help you protect your legal rights.
What Constitutes A Probation Violation?
Probation is a common punishment that the court metes out for a range of different crimes. First offenses, misdemeanor and felony charges can merit probation terms, and should you violate their restrictions, you can quickly lose the freedom you have been allotted. Some common examples of probation violations include:
- Leaving the state without permission
- Failure to appear in court
- An arrest for a different crime
- Missing an appointment with your probation officer
- Not making payments for your fines or restitution
Probation violations, while quite serious, are defensible. An experienced lawyer can tailor a strategy designed to help you avoid serving jail time or paying additional fines. At the Law Offices of Walter L. Lutes, P.C., I take a comprehensive, attentive approach to aiding individuals who are facing the revocation of their probation.
