Orlando, Florida: Defense of Probation Violation Charges
Law Office of Corey I. Cohen, P.A., with offices in Orlando, Florida, makes jail visits to consult with clients who have been arrested on charges of violating probation.
Jail visits are usually necessary in probation violation cases, because the offender will usually be arrested and placed on a no-bond hold. A no-bond hold means that the offender will remain in jail until a hearing is held on whether the offender actually did violate the terms of their probation.
Low-Cost Defense of Violation of Probation Charges
At The Law Office of Cohen I. Cohen, we believe that everyone is entitled to high-quality legal representation that doesn't cost an arm and a leg. Our lawyers offer one of the lowest fees in the Orlando area for handling violation of probation or community control (house arrest) cases.
If convicted of a charge of probation violation, you can receive the original jail or prison sentence for the crime you got probation or community control for. The sentence will not take into account any time you spent successfully serving probation or community control: in other words, if the original sentence was five years and you successfully served six months' probation, you could still be sentenced to the original five year prison term.
We Argue for Release Pending the Hearing
Our first job, as a defense attorney for someone accused of a probation violation, is to file a bond motion to get our client released pending the hearing on the probation violation.
We Work up a Defense to the Probation Violation Charge
After the bond hearing, we conduct an independent investigation - examining police reports and interviewing witnesses to help build a defense to the charge of probation violation.
- Was the violation willful?
- If our client failed a urinalysis or drug screen, was the testing equipment in proper working order?
- Did our client have a reasonable excuse for failing to report to a probation officer or for changing residences without approval?
- If the violation charges our client with failing to pay fines or restitution, is our client under financial hardship but making a good-faith attempt?
