Federal Probation and Supervised Release Violations
Criminal Defense Attorneys in Charlotte
A person convicted in federal court usually ends up on probation or in federal prison, followed by a period of supervised release. Those on probation or under supervised release will be monitored by a probation officer and could be violated by that officer for any number of reasons. Consequences for violating probation or supervised release include prison time.
The attorneys at Fialko Law have experience investigating and defending these types of violations by negotiating plea deals with United State’s Attorney’s Office or representing clients in contested violation hearings.
Fialko Law has defended the following types of violations in recent years:
- New law violations, such as weapon and drug possession
- Failing drug tests
- Failing to report to scheduled mental health appointments
- Failing to follow instructions
- Failing to report information to a probation officer, such as address and employment information
Federal probation and supervised release violations are serious and can result in significant additional prison time. Individuals accused of such violations should consult an experience lawyer.
