Who Gets Sentenced to Probation?
The probation violation lawyers at Ramsell & Associates, LLC, will present evidence to the court demonstrating your contributions to society in your work life and home life, and the likelihood that you will not re-offend. Your criminal attorney will try to work with the court to come up with conditions of probation that are reasonable and the least restrictive option, that allows you to live your life while also meeting the requirements of the court.
What Are Typical Probation Requirements?
The exact terms of your probation are negotiated with the court, so it is important to work with a criminal defense attorney with strong negotiating skills, a practical, down-to-earth approach, and a forceful presence. Probation always includes reporting to a probation officer on a set schedule and staying out of legal trouble. It may also include staying employed, community service, drug testing, treatment, counseling, making restitution, and paying fines.
