Probation violations often pose serious threats to a defendant's future and freedom. With the possibility of jail time, hefty fines, and additional probation requirements ahead, you will need the aggressive and diligent legal guidance of our firm's Oakland criminal defense lawyer.
Probation violations can occur for a number of reasons. When you are released on probation, you are given a number of restrictions and orders. A violation of any of the requirements or the commission of a new crime can result in the charge of a probation violation.
At The Castillo Law Office, we understand the challenges that you face when you are charged with a probation violation under California Penal Code § 1203 PC. After being investigated for a probation violation after an original misdemeanor or felony conviction, a hearing will likely take place. Either an officer will place you under arrest and bring you before a judge or a judge will issue a California arrest warrant. If you fail to report to your scheduled hearing, the judge can issue a California bench warrant for your arrest.
The California probation violation hearing will work in a similar way to a trial.
With years of experience, we can fight on your behalf as you navigate this complex case. Contact our firm at your earliest convenience!
