Probation violation consequences are often severe and can include jail time, drug tests, additional probation, or the maximum possible penalty in your original sentence. Probation violations in Colorado are a serious matter and require the knowledge of a skilled probation violation lawyer. You do not want to face these types of additional charges during your probation violation hearing and Kevin can help you understand how to best handle probation violations in Colorado.
Probation is often offered as a compromise to first-time offenders and allows you to skip out on any potential jail or prison time in exchange for weekly or monthly monitoring. Sometimes, you can forget the rules of your probation or make a mistake like missing a meeting with your probation officer, consuming drugs or alcohol or not completing community service. If you are found guilty and convicted of a probation violation then you will very likely seek an increase in penalties during your probation violation hearing. Probation violation consequences can be serious and include penalties such as prison time, short stints in jail and being placed back on probation, additional community service, counseling, or attending drug and alcohol rehabilitation programs. In the worst possible case, you can be sentenced to the maximum amount of jail or prison time that could have originally been imposed when you were convicted of the crime. This typically happens when your probation officer and judge do not believe that you are taking your probation seriously. Any probation violation can result in jail time, no matter how minor or petty you may think it is. Skilled probation violation lawyers will be able to stand up for you during your hearing and show that the probation violation was a one-time mistake and does not reflect your intent to take probation seriously.
