If you violated terms of the original criminal conviction, a judge can revoke your probation for any number of reasons:

  • New criminal charges
  • A failed drug test
  • Failing to pay fines, court fees or restitution
  • Failing to complete treatment or community service
  • Absconding from the jurisdiction
  • Failing to report to your probation officer
  • Other violations of the conditions of probation

Criminal defense lawyer Laura Baker will represent you at your probation revocation hearing. Before that date, they advise clients on steps they can take to convince the judge to grant another chance: paying money owed, finishing classes or treatment, attending A.A. meetings, connecting with your probation officer. If your violation was financial, they can try to show the judge that it was because of hardship and not willful.

In the event your probation is revoked, we can still try to limit the consequences. If the judge says no more second chances, our goal is to have clients sentenced to no more than the minimum time of the original sentence range.
