If the court suspects or observes you have violated the terms of your probation, you can be arrested by a probation or law enforcement officer. Thereafter, a probation revocation hearing may be held before you are arrested. If this hearing has not occurred at the time of your arrest, you will receive a preliminary hearing within seven business days. The purpose of this hearing is to determine whether there is probable cause to believe a condition of probation was violated.
Accused of Probation Violations?
An experienced criminal defense lawyer from the Robinson Law Firm can ensure you are treated fairly during this process and not presumed guilty of violations before such are proven. If you have not received a preliminary hearing within seven business days, you must be released with your probation in continuance pending a hearing. Should probable cause not be found, you must be released to continue with your original probation.
