If you are on probation in Virginia, it is important to comply with all requirements. Unfortunately, there may be occasions where it is not always possible to do so. If your probation officer has moved to revoke your probation, or you suspect that it could happen, make sure you contact a lawyer with probation violation experience as soon as possible.
At this point, you already have at least one conviction to your name. To make matters worse, you have now been accused of committing another violation. If you wait until your court date to address the violation, there is a chance that you will be too late; you need to begin preparing a strong defense as soon as possible, at the very least, taking steps to show the judge that you have learned a lesson. Whenever you go to court for a probation violation, there is a strong chance that jail time could be imposed. With stakes that high, you need to contact a lawyer with experience as early into the process as possible to ensure the best result.
