Utah Parole & Probation Law Firm

Probation Violation Defense Attorneys.

Salt Lake City’s Premier Legal Representation 

In Utah, judges routinely place people on probation to avoid the expenses of jail time. Failing to adhere to your probation terms places you at great risk of going to jail or even prison. If you are accused of violating your probation or parole terms, you should seek experienced legal help.

The Salt Lake City criminal defense attorneys at Utah Criminal Defense Attorneys have extensive experience defending individuals suspected of violating the terms of their probation for many reasons. Some of these reasons have included:

  • Being charged with another crime
  • Positive drug test results
  • Failure to report to a probation officer or treatment program
  • Substance use or abuse in violation of your probation
  • Failure to complete Court-ordered community service
  • Failure to pay restitution or fines
 

Suppose you are suspected of a probation violation or have received Notice of an Order to Show Cause. In that case, this is not the time to make any decisions without an experienced criminal defense lawyer fighting for your rights. The accusations against you do not need to be proven beyond a reasonable doubt like regular criminal charges. The prosecutor has a much lower standard to meet in this instance, making it easier for you to be convicted. If you are found in violation of your probation or parole, the judge can sentence you to the maximum sentence for the charges you previously were convicted of.

Parole Violation.

After completing a prison sentence and as a part of the terms of early release, many people are placed on parole under a parole officer’s supervision. During this time, individuals are allowed to show that they are not a threat to society and can readjust to life among the general population. During this time, these people are required to adhere to strict guidelines that usually include things like:

  • Do not commit another crime
  • Do not use drugs or alcohol
  • Do not contact the victim
  • Stay in contact with your parole officer

If you are accused of violating your parole, your parole officer can request that a warrant be issued for your arrest, or you could be ordered to report to jail.

Chris returned my call and even after hearing that charges were not going to be filed against me he stayed on the phone with me for 30 minutes and listened to my side of the story. Another firm had already charged me $285 for this service and wanted another $2,500 to do a “pre-filing” representation. Chris said he would have told me that it didn’t find the need for a pre-filing and even even he did he would only charged $500 NOT $2,500. I don’t expect to ever need a criminal defense attorney but if I do, Chris at Utah Criminal Defense Attorney will be my ONE call.👍🤘🇺🇸

I called these guys because I was worried that my friend would go to jail for some pretty serious allegations. They talked me through what it looked like the options were, and ultimately I had my friend call In and talk with one of their attorneys. These guys were able to talk to my friend and the prosecutors and work with the police to work out a very fair resolution that made me thankful that I made the initial call. Thank you Chris and Your entire criminal defense team, you guys are the best in the state!
