Violation of Community Control
If you find yourself or a loved one in violation of community control please call our office immediately.
We offer a very reasonable fee for these cases.
To begin defense in such a case, a lawyer from our firm will go to the jail to visit the client and listen to his/her side of the story. We will then prepare a bond motion and start working on an aggressive defense in preparation of a hearing.
We Argue for a Bond While the Charges Are Pending
Our first job, as defense attorneys for someone accused of a community control violation, is to file a bond motion to get our client released pending the hearing on the community control violation.
We Work Up a Defense to the Community Control 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 community control 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?
There are many defenses to a violation of community control, please call Corey Cohen and Associates for a free case analysis by phone or in the office.
