Probation is a privilege that is granted to some convicted criminals to allow them to serve a portion of their sentence in the community with regular check-ins to a probationary officer rather than in jail or prison. If you are granted the privilege of probation, then it is important that you abide by all of the regulations placed upon you to avoid further complications that may increase your risk of receiving an extended sentence or serving the remainder of your sentence in jail.
These rules and regulations may include:
When you are on probation, you must abide by all terms of your probation. If you abide by these terms and remain in contact with a probation officer, then you may be able to serve your sentence and be released in a timely fashion; however, with so many rules and regulations to consider when on probation, some individuals may slip up. When a violation happens, you need to work with a Hartford criminal attorney who can help defend you against extended or increased sentencing. When you work with Carlson & Dumeer, LLC, we will ensure that you receive a favorable outcome for your case.
Sometimes, probationers are unaware of all the regulations that they must abide by in order to avoid complications. If you did not report to a probation officer in a timely manner, report a move, or stayed out past a curfew, then you need to work with our team. It may be to your benefit to retain a Hartford criminal lawyer if you feel that any of your rights were violated while you were on probation as well.
Even probationers have the right to be treated fairly and professionally and be free from harassment, discrimination, or bias. Our team can investigate every aspect of your case and ensure that a strong legal defense will be developed to help you obtain a positive outcome for your case.
