Probation or Parole Violations
Have you been charged with probation or parole violations? Alejo Lugo will fight for you.
Probation or parole can be a great alternative to serving time in jail or prison. However, if it is alleged that you violated the terms of your probation or parole, you could face incarceration or other penalties.
Obviously, you do not want to have your probation or parole revoked unfairly and end up behind bars. That is why you should retain a skilled and experienced probation and parole violation defense attorney like The Law Offices of Alejo Lugo to help you if you are accused of a violation like:
- Allegedly committing a new crime
- Failing to pass a drug test
- Missing a court date or
- Missing a meeting with your parole or probation officer
- Not paying your fines or court costs
- Violating other conditions of probation or parole by using alcohol or skipping AA meetings, etc.
Let Us Help You Win Your Probation or Parole Violation Hearing
Although individuals have certain limitations on their rights while on probation or parole, you do still have the right to defend yourself if you are accused of a parole or violation. You can exercise this right during a parole or probation violation hearing.
It is very important to be properly prepared for your hearing. After all, in a probation or parole violation hearing, the prosecutor only needs to show that you are guilty by a preponderance of the evidence—in other words, they must show that it is more likely than not that you committed the violation given the evidence. This means it is easier to prove a violation in a hearing than it is to prove a criminal charge in court. You will absolutely want to have a skilled and experienced defense attorney fighting for you if you hope to disprove the case against you.
If you choose The Law Offices of Alejo Lugo & Associates to represent you, we will work to find any evidence that would point to your innocence or any information that could discredit the prosecution’s case.
If the facts make it impossible to win the violation hearing, we will argue for alternative sentencing such as extending your probation/parole or amending the terms instead of revoking it and sending you to prison. We will highlight any positive factors about your situation to argue that you were making good progress and that the violation was a mistake that will not happen again.
