Chicago Probation Violations
Call a Skilled Criminal Defense Lawyer in Chicago
Probation violations are common and occur for many reasons. Probation violations
range from minor events like accidentally missing a scheduled meeting
to major events like being charged with a new crime.
If you violate the terms of probation, you can face the following:
- Prison time to serve out the remainder of the sentence
- Additional charges and a longer sentence
- No chance of probation in the future
Unlike the government's burden of proof at trial, which is "beyond
a reasonable doubt," the government's burden at a probation violation
hearing is a "preponderance of the evidence." This means the
government needs to prove only that it was more likely than not that the
defendant violated his or her probation. Go into this hearing with confidence;
retain legal representation for your case as soon as possible.
