Probation Violations There's No Alternative

Top Orange County Probation Violation Lawyers

Probation Violation California

Following a violation, speaking with an Orange County probation violation Lawyer could help you substantially. Any California resident who has been convicted of a crime in the state is subject to probation as part of their sentencing. This is true for both misdemeanor and felony convictions regardless of whether it is a white collar crime or any other type of offense. Conditions will be imposed upon the defendant for the duration of the probation, and failing to comply with any of those could cause the terms to be revoked and a prison sentence imposed in its place.

Common Probation Conditions in California

The judge presiding over a criminal case has the right to impose conditions when handing down a sentence. One of the most common violations is when a person picks up a new case. The term “violate no law” is often used when a person is arrested for a new case. This results in an immediate probation violation petition, which could result in increased punishment. The terms are entirely at the Judge’s discretion and will usually entail restrictions relevant to the crime.

The terms given can include:

  • A Restitution Fee. In most instances the payment for restitution can be made in small amounts. Along with this condition it is often imposed that the defendant remain employed. If the payments stop, or the defendant is found to be unemployed for an unreasonable amount of time, he can be found in violation
  • Enrollment in a drug or alcohol program, such as AA, and abstinence from all drugs and alcohol. The judge can insist that the offender undergo scheduled or random drug and alcohol screening
  • Condition that there is no contact made with the victim named in the case. This is a requirement most often utilized in domestic violence cases
  • Community Service and/or Cal-Trans roadside work
  • Mandatory Counseling or Therapy
  • Certain Search Conditions. A judge may impose that the defendant allow his person or property be searched by California police at any time without a warrant or probable cause
  • An Electronic Monitoring Device. This type of condition is almost exclusive to sex offender crimes and will also include the condition that the defendant is registered as a sex offender
  • An Understanding that it is a violation to refuse to submit to a chemical DUI blood or breathalyzer test. California DUI probation will always include the provision that the offender never drive with any amount of alcohol and/or drugs in their system. They can also be required to have an ignition interlock device or SCRAM device installed on their vehicle if they have multiple DUI convictions

In addition, there is always the requirement that an individual who has been granted probation in lieu of a jail sentence does not violate any additional laws. If it is suspected that the defendant has violated one or more terms, then he will be subject to a violation hearing.

    "An Attorney I Could Trust"
    I called to inquire about a case I was facing, this was one of the many attorneys I was speaking with during a free consult about my next steps. The future was looking more and more alarming as the implications of what I was facing were becoming clear. Halfway through explaining my situation, he interrupted me and asked some basic information, put me on hold for one second and came back telling me he had called around and found out that my case was not proceeding. Four other attorneys I had spoken to did not do this, and in fact had used scare tactics and worst case scenarios to try and hard sell me into signing a retainer. (unfortunately, the evening before I HAD with another attorney signed a retainer but thats for another review) Although I did not need to retain the services of this office, I believe that single action speaks worlds about the integrity, helpfulness, intelligence and capabilities of this office. In a world that is so difficult for the uninitiated, such as the legal system, it seems people are taking advantage of you at every turn. It was a welcome and uplifting experience to see the opposite of that with this law office and I am so grateful I was able to find them and know I could call them if anything were to ever happen to me later in life and know I could trust this team.
    "Man of his word - got the issue resolved."
    I hired Randy after my previous attorney failed to give me proper information and caused me to violate my probation. Randy appeared in court for got the issue resolved without any head aches. He was a man of his word and I highly recommend him.
    "All my friends' cases either dismissed or reduced significantly."
    Randy is a great attorney that has helped me out of a bad situation. I refer all of my friends that get in trouble and he has gotten all of their cases either dismissed or reduced significantly. You definitely get what you pay for when you hire this firm.

    "The one attorney you want on your side!"
    He is amazing!! I'm am happy to say that my daughter's charges were dismissed! Randy did an excellent job!!! I couldn't have made a better decision the day I called his office.
    "Handled my case in record time with the best possible outcome."
    Randy is awesome! I called so many attorneys and in all honesty he is such an incredible person. All of his office staff is friendly, professional and knowledgeable. He really cares about the welfare of his clients and takes time to discuss your needs in person. I highly recommend him. He handled my case in record time with the best possible outcome.
    "They are such a great team to work with."
    I was new in the US and I didn’t know anything or what to do from Day 1 from presenting my case to Randy. He reassured me that he would help me and that I shouldn’t worry. He was very supportive, responsive to every question no matter how silly it was he was very patient and comforting. He knew exactly how to address the problem and had a plan of action and after a long 2 years, he won my case I appreciate every effort Randy & Chris have done. They are such a great team to work with and I would recommend him in a heartbeat
    "Caring and Genuine Attorney"
    I called the office and right off the bat, I was super impressed at how much help I was receiving without even meeting in person. Chris (the guy who answered my call) is extremely nice and he explains everything so well. He told me how he used to work at the courts for many years (that gave me relief that he knew what he was talking about). Randy (the attorney) is delightful as well and put my worries to rest with his expertise and knowledge. You can tell by his demeanor and how passionate he speaks, that he is genuine and he cares about his clients. This office handles everything from DUI cases to just about anything criminal related.
