PROBATION VIOLATION

Attorney Bill Booth has successfully had reinstated several hundred probations involving both technical violations and those caused by new offenses. Generally, if a new offense is alleged, his initial focus would be upon whether or not the client has in fact committed a new criminal offense. Granted, if a new criminal offense has been committed while the client is on probation, the client is in jeopardy of having his probation revoked. However, with Attorney Bill Booth, even if a new criminal offense was committed, this does not automatically mean that the probation will be revoked. Likewise, with Attorney Bill Booth, a technical violation does not automatically mean that the probation will be revoked. With Bill Booth defending, his objective is to have the Judge reinstate the probation.

When faced with a violation, Attorney Bill Booth first explores whether there is some alternative to incarceration that would be sufficient to address the issue of the violation. An effort is made to offer to the Judge this alternative to incarceration.

If the violation involves the failure of a drug test, then the client could be ordered to enroll in an intensive outpatient program. Additionally, there are various scientific solutions that can be imposed such as the requirement of submitting to a drug test at any time, or the patch, or hair follicle testing or Scram which is a bracelet worn around the ankle that detects alcohol through the skin. If this is not the first drug failure and not the first violation alleged, then there are a number of inpatient treatment centers that are available for the clients to obtain the help which they need rather than just sending them to prison.

If the technical violation involves failure to report, this is considered a very serious violation by the Judge. However, there are many situations which would cause an individual to not report. First, none of these reasons is an excuse for not reporting. However, when a truthful explanation is given as to why an individual did not report, there are many times when the Judge will understand that although the person should not have stopped reporting, the failure to report alone should not result in the person being sent to prison.

Thus, by this short discussion above, one can see that although one is in serious trouble if in violation, Attorney Bill Booth investigates a full examination of the entire factual situation in order to, hopefully, convince the Judge that the person is worthy of being given another chance, thereby having the probation reinstated. There almost always will be negative consequences for violation of one’s probation, but Attorney Bill Booth has most successfully made and will continue to make all efforts to find an alternative to prison and have his clients’ probations reinstated.
