Probation And Parole Violation
When a person receives probation or parole, he or she must comply with the terms of the probation or parole. If that individual violates any terms of probation or parole, he or she can face enhanced penalties and incarceration. My goal is to help you resolve this matter as efficiently as possible and keep you out of jail.

Examples Of Violating Probation And Parole
Probation is an alternative to a jail or prison sentence. Parole is when you are released from jail prior to your entire sentence being served. While you are not in jail, you are still under the rules of the court. You will be required to follow all of the conditions of probation or parole. Any violation of the terms can result in serious penalties. As a skilled Lafayette probation violation lawyer, I defend people who have bench warrants for their arrests and other legal problems due to failing to follow the terms. Some examples of probation and parole violations include:
- Failing to pay court fines, fees or costs
- Failing to complete or participate in community service
- Failing to complete or participate in drug and/or alcohol abuse treatment
- Failing to pay criminal restitution
- Failing to pass a drug test
- Getting arrested for a new offense
I know that this matter can impact many parts of your life, including your future, your relationships and your family. I strive to resolve the matter swiftly by having the violation withdrawn whenever possible.
