Lynnwood Probation Violation Attorney
What is Probation And How Is It Violated?
One of the sentences that a judge may impose when someone is convicted
of a crime is probation, the suspension of a jail sentence. The probation
may be the only sentence imposed or it may be tacked onto the end of a
jail sentence as further punishment.
When probation is imposed, you are permitted to return to your everyday
life as long as you adhere to certain restrictions and requirements. Should
you not follow the restrictions and requirements, then a violation of
the probation results and you are likely to stand before the judge again
to face additional consequences and charges, including possible jail time.
