Fulton County Violation of Probation Attorney
FIGHTING PROBATION VIOLATION CHARGES
Most DUI convictions include a term of probation as part of the sentencing - for the lucky ones. A 1st DUI conviction usually includes probation up to 1 year in length. Probation periods for a 2nd DUI or a 3rd DUI can be extensive. The consequences are very serious if an individual who is already on probation is arrested for a new offense, or for not meeting the conditions of the current probation. The judge may require that you serve the full sentence in jail after a violation. Any violation of probation is an urgent situation. You need the assistance of a Fulton County DUI attorney who can take immediate action to help you avoid being taken into custody, or being forced to serve a long term for probation violation and the full term that was avoided when probation was given as part of the sentence.

Probation commonly includes a number of terms such as court ordered alcohol education, fines, community service, all of which must be completed within a specified period of time and refraining from committing any new offense. Failure to comply with any requirement will be a violation of your probation, which leads to an arrest warrant and being taken into custody at any time. If the court is not notified that you have completed a requirement by the deadline, the judge can take this as non-compliance even though it is just a matter of paperwork. Having a probation violation lawyer fighting for you can make a huge difference in the outcome of your case.
