Minnesota Probation Violation Lawyer
While being on probation is preferable to being locked up in prison or jail, being on probation presents its own set of challenges and disadvantages. Many individuals who spend time on probation end up facing a probation violation.
If you have been accused of violating the terms of your probation in Minnesota, Kevin DeVore can help. If you deny to the courts that you violated your probation an evidentiary hearing will take place. During this hearing the state must prove with convincing evidence that you violated the term of your probation. If your probation officer claims you violated your conditional release terms you should contact a criminal lawyer immediately to properly prepare your defense strategy with our law firm.
rotecting Your Legal Rights
You do have rights when you are on probation. These rights can be properly represented in your defense by a criminal lawyer. These important rights include:
- The right to a hearing
- The right to present evidence on your behalf
- The right to present witnesses
- The right to cross-examine witnesses
- The right to have an attorney represent you and your interests
Protect Your Future By Contacting An Attorney
Finding yourself charged with a probation violation is just the latest step in your involvement with the criminal justice system. You simply cannot run the risk of going from serving a conditional release to something even more serious, including prison or jail time. Even if you do not end up incarcerated, you can be required to spend more time on probation, be sentenced to a more strict form of probation or even end up on house arrest or home detention. In short, your life can be turned upside down, even for a minor violation.
