What is a probation revocation hearing? What does it mean if my probation gets revoked? How do I know if my probation will be revoked because of a new criminal charge?
These are critical questions that require evaluation by a knowledgeable and experienced defense attorney.
If a court previously gave you a Suspended Imposition of Sentence (SIS) or Suspended Execution of Sentence (SES) for a criminal offense, your probation will most often be set for a revocation hearing due to a new laws violation or a failure to comply with previously existing conditions of probation.
If you have received notice of a probation revocation hearing, the important thing to remember is that your probation has not been revoked yet! At the revocation hearing, the court will likely hear from both the state and also your probation officer, if your probation was supervised, before deciding whether or not to allow you to continue on probation.
If your probation is set for a revocation hearing, it is critical that you are represented by counsel at that hearing in order to help provide the judge with complete and accurate information, and to ensure that you have the best opportunity to remain on probation.
