Probation Revocation Lawyer in Denver

probation-revocation-lawyer-omalley-and-sawyer-llc.jpegProbation sentences in Denver, and throughout Colorado, can be considered a favorable outcome when convicted of a criminal offense. As an alternative to time spent in jail or prison, a strict set of rules and guidelines often accompany a probation sentence. Some individuals find it difficult to obey each and every requirement, while others make an honest mistake. Either way, violating your terms of probation can result in severe consequences. In order to handle these situations properly, it is vital to contact an experienced probation revocation lawyer with a strong working knowledge of the probation system.

What is a Petition to Revoke Probation in Denver?

Terms and conditions for each probation sentence can be different. For example, those convicted of a sex offense face probation with far more strict rules and guidelines. There are many different actions that can result in a probation violation. Leaving the state without a travel voucher, failing to pay fees and fines, committing another crime, failing drug tests, missing scheduled appointments without notice, and contacting prohibited individuals can all result in a violation. A Petition to Revoke Probation or Complaint to Revoke Probation can then be filed, usually by your probation officer.

What is a Probation Revocation Hearing in Denver?

A probation revocation hearing will include an appearance before a judge where both sides are given the opportunity to present evidence and call witnesses. Examples of what a probation officer might reference in the hearing are evidence that you:

  • Missed scheduled appointments
  • Didn't complete treatment
  • Failed to complete community service
  • Did not pay fines, fees, and restitution
  • Committed another offense
  • Failed an urinalysis

This is the point where a skilled criminal defense lawyer by your side is especially critical. Your attorney can present evidence to the judge that explains why any of your terms and conditions of probation weren't met and whether it was in fact your fault.

Consequences of Violating Probation in Denver

If it is determined in a probation revocation hearing that you did violate terms and conditions of probation, you can face some strict punishments. A judge can potentially revoke your probation, re-sentence the probation, or sentence a defendant to jail, prison, or community corrections. There is little to no margin for error when it comes to probation in Denver. Mistakes do in fact happen, but aren't tolerated by probation departments throughout Colorado. Our attorneys can help fight allegations, clarify misunderstandings, highlight truths, and potentially reduce the consequences for probation violations.

If you or someone you know has been accused of violating probation, be smart. Contact the aggressive criminal defense attorneys at O'Malley and Sawyer at 303-731-0719. Together, we can protect your future.
