Probation Violation Fighting for Your Rights & Freedoms

Ventura Probation Violation Lawyers

Probation allows those charged with crimes an opportunity to adopt better behaviors and accomplish rehabilitation outside of prison. Ultimately, it offers the charged individual an opportunity for greater freedom. But, as this is a privilege, any violations to the rules outlined in the terms of your probation could be grounds for harsher punishments. If you violated your probation, even unintentionally, you’ll need to contact our defense attorneys immediately. We will fight to keep you out of prison so you may maintain your freedom.

Wilfert Law P.C. defense lawyers are available to the Ventura community around the clock. We accept calls when you need us, no matter the hour: (805) 324-6777.

Formal and Summary Probation

California courts offer a variety of probation protocols based on the criminal charge in question. Summary probation is less strict while formal probation maintains tougher guidelines.

Summary probation is also known as informal probation or court probation. It can arise from a misdemeanor charge either in place of or in addition to other penalties such as jail sentences, community service, and fines. This program is overseen by the court rather than the probation department.

Formal probation offers convicted individuals an alternative to prison. This stricter probation is supervised by a probation officer and lasts three to five years.

Regardless of the type of probation you are meant to abide by or the violations you committed, our defense attorneys can review your case and strategize a plan to fight to maintain your freedom.

Probation Violation Penalties

Probation allows a person to remain out of jail and in the community under the supervision of a probation officer. Because the purpose of probation is to incentivize lawful behavior and protect public safety, probation violations can result in serious penalties, including:

  • Revocation of probation and reinstating your original sentence
  • Infliction of a harsher sentence
  • Extension of probation term
  • Mandated counseling
  • Mandated participation in treatment programs
  • Community service

We know the challenges that accompany compliance and can aggressively defend your rights. Our Ventura probation violation attorneys can help prepare a case to defend your freedom if you are facing charges for violating the terms of your probation.
