Probation is an alternative or adjunct to a jail or prison sentence. Some
sentences allow defendants to completely avoid incarceration through completing
probation and other requirements. Probation offers others the opportunity
to return to the community in a supervised manner after serving a jail
sentence. Probation is different from parole, which is conditional release
from prison after serving all or part of one's sentence.
If you received probation rather than jail or prison time for a criminal
offense, your attorney probably worked very hard to help you retain your
freedom. A probation violation once again puts you at risk of incarceration.
If you are being accused of violating parole, it is important that you
contact a Riverside probation violation attorney at Blumenthal Law Offices
Seeking Alternatives to Jail
A probation violation doesn't automatically mean you are headed for
jail or prison.
Our attorneys can negotiate alternatives to incarceration, such as:
- Extension of probation
- Participation in substance abuse programs or alcohol treatment
- Community service
We can look at the nature and severity of the probation violation. We may
argue that you were in substantial compliance with the terms of your sentence,
or we can seek to assure the court that you will comply with the remaining
terms of your sentence.
