Probation Violations

Violating Probation In New York City

If you are convicted of a felony or misdemeanor crime in New York, probation may be part of your sentence. Probation gives you the opportunity to stay out of jail and avoid some fines and other penalties. In exchange, you must comply with the terms of your probation.

Probation terms may include checking in regularly with your probation officer and performing community service. Probation for driving under the influence (DUI), for example, may include submitting to random tests for drug and alcohol or installing an ignition interlock device on your car. If you fail to comply with these requirements, you can be arrested and charged with a probation violation.

You Could Be Remanded To Jail

If the court decides that you have violated the terms of your probation, you could be terminated from probation, and your original sentence reinstated. The criminal defense lawyers of Getz & Braverman, P.C., are experienced in representing clients accused of probation violations.

We will review your case and develop a strategy for defending you. In some cases, we may argue that your actions did not violate the terms of your probation.
