Probation Violations Defense in Columbus
Have you been charged with a probation violation?
When you are on probation, there are specific terms and requirements that must be met in order to safety complete your probation. When there is an accusation that you failed to uphold the terms of probation, such as failing to pay a fine, complete a treatment program, restitution or avoid future arrests.
In many cases, the probation violation is completely in error, such as in cases when a fine was actually paid, or a treatment program was completed but the information was not forwarded to the court. Other cases may be related to other mistakes such as when an individual moves and has not received important court notices, or when they failed to attend a meeting with their probation officer due to illness or other situation.
