Houston Probation Violation Attorney

No one wants to be on probation, but it is still a far cry better than imprisonment. Even so, it can be challenging to properly follow all of the limiting restrictions you face while serving probation. Unfortunately, although violating probation can be easy, it can also result in major punishments, including the reinstatement of the maximum penalty for the crimes you have been convicted of. If you have been accused of a probation violation, it is critical you contact a skilled Houston criminal lawyer as soon as possible in order to fight these accusations.

There are two types of probation violations, technical breaking of the rules and the committing of a new crime. Technical violations are easier to do, much more common and easier to fight. You will only be charged with a probation violation if the court shows you violated the rules willfully and materially. If you accidentally broke a rule or only made a minor rule violation, your Houston criminal attorney will likely be able to prove that you should not be subject to additional punishments. It is common for people to make mistakes and to fall victim to unforeseen circumstances and probation violation hearings are not intended to people who have done either.

Defend Against Probation Violation Criminal Charges

When you have been accused of committing a new crime, the best defense is to show that you did not, actually, do the crime. It is always greatly advantageous to hire the same Houston criminal lawyer for both the trial for the new crime and the probation violation hearing, as he will be more familiar with both cases this way. If you are found innocent of the charges, it is unlikely that you will be found guilty of violating your probation.
