Defending Those Accused Of Probation Violations
When you are placed on probation for DUI or DWI, Possession of Marijuana, or other criminal charge, whether it be on a DUI Diversion in Johnson County or a Suspended Sentence for DWI in Kansas City, you agree to comply with the conditions of that probation .
Probation Violations may include :
- Positive drug testing or 'Dirty' Urinalysis test
- Use of alcohol or illegal drugs while on probation or diversion
- A new DUI charge
- Repeat Violations or Major Violations of the law
- Failure to complete required alcohol or drug education classes
- Failure to pay fines and costs
- Failure to report to your Probation Officer
If you have violated Diversion or Probation a letter or notice from the Court should be provided to you listing the alleged violations of probation. A date for the Probation Violation Hearing should be set by the Court. You have the right to have an attorney represent you at the Probation Violation Hearing.
At a Probation Violation Hearing you may be looking at serving jail time that was previously suspended pending your successful completion of probation. If you were placed on Diversion you may be looking at losing the benefits of that Diversion, which might include a conviction of that criminal offense and mandatory jail time.
