California Probation Violations

California Criminal Defense Attorney

When Probation is Violated

California probation violations attorney and Los Angeles Drug Lawyer, Ronald Ziff, is a seasoned veteran at getting reduced senteces for CA crimes. California probation is a conditional release from incarceration after completing a jail sentence. It is not to be confused with parole, which follows a prison sentence.

In the case of probation, you may be required to complete it as either supervised or unsupervised. Since the consequences of a California probation violation can be serious, if you are charged with violating probation, it is essential that you seek the services of an experienced attorney, such as Los Angeles drug lawyer Ronald Ziff.

Common Violations

In California, you violate probation whenever you fail to comply with any of the terms of your release. You can violate probation by:

  • failing to report to your probation officer at scheduled times
  • failing to complete assigned community service
  • failing to successfully complete a drug rehabilitation program
  • failing to appear at a scheduled court hearing
  • failing to pay fines or restitution.

A probation violation occurs when any crime is committed during your California probation period, regardless of whether or not it is related to the possession of illegal drugs or a previous crime you committed. You can be charged with violating your probation even if you are arrested for a crime you did not commit. If a court prohibited you from associating with certain people or engaging in certain activities, you commit a probation violation by engaging in these associations or activities.  

California Probation Violation Hearings

If you are charged with violating your California probation you may have to attend two hearings:

  1. Pre-revocation Hearing—At the pre-revocation probation hearing, the judge will determine whether there is probable cause to convene a revocation hearing. If probable cause is found, he or she will either set bail or release you on your own recognizance.
  2. Probation Revocation Hearing—During the probation revocation hearing the prosecutor need not establish guilt beyond a reasonable doubt, as in a prosecution for possession of illegal drugs. He or she must only present enough evidence to show that it is more likely than not that you committed a probation violation.

You are not entitled to a jury trial. At the probation hearing, the judge will consider the following items:

  • the seriousness of your probation violation
  • any previous probation violations
  • your criminal history
  • any new criminal activity associated with your probation violation
  • the opinion of your probation officer
  • other relevant factors

Los Angeles drug lawyer Ronald A. Ziff can effectively represent you at both of these hearings.

Penalties and Punishment

In Los Angeles, the punishment for a probation violation can be light or severe. The judge may extend your probation, require you to pay a fine, modify the terms of your probation by requiring you to complete community service or a drug treatment program, or revoke your probation and send you back to jail.    

Representation Matters

Los Angeles drug lawyer Ronald A. Ziff has over 35 years of experience dealing with criminal cases involving illegal drugs and probation violations, including several years as a prosecutor. If you are charged with a probation violation, he will mount a vigorous defense that will include a thorough investigation of the law and the facts surrounding your case.

Attorney Ziff might be able to:

  • have your bail reduced or eliminated;
  • reduce the severity of any new probation terms; or
  • prevent the revocation of your probation altogether.
