Probation Violations Attorney in Kansas City, Missouri
Effective Representation for Probation Violations
A probation violation is frequently described by the courts as failing to comply with one or more terms or conditions of an Order of Probation. A probation violation can occur when someone who previously pleaded guilty or was convicted in court fails to do something or fails to complete one or more tasks they had been ordered by the court to complete. Three of the more common probation violation fact patterns are failing to report to the probation officer, failing to complete a court ordered program or course of therapy, or being accused of having committed a new criminal offense while on probation.
Probation violation allegations are serious matters which can lead to serious consequences. If the court revokes a defendant’s probation, the end result of the revocation is the defendant can potentially be sent to serve a sentence either in the jail or with the Department of Corrections for months if not years.
