PUT OUR EXPERIENCE TO WORK FOR YOU!
An accusation that one has violated their probation is a serious accusation and can have serious consequences. A violation of probation often results in “no bond” and leave you or a loved one behind bars.
A violation of probation is different from a typical criminal charge. At a violation hearing hearsay is admissible, there is no fifth amendment right against self-incrimination and the prosecution does not need to prove guilt beyond a reasonable doubt. The state must only prove your guilt by a preponderance of the evidence.
If you are accused of a violation of probation it is critical that you seek an experienced attorney who understands the complexities of a violation and can help you get back on the right track. Call Cagan & Cagan today!
