I,m between 2.5 and 3 years into the sentence with one year as a free man. I've had one previous similar theft charge , however it was before i was placed on parole. I got time served.
It is a definite possibility. Any criminal activity is grounds for a violation of parole. You will likely get notice of a violation and given a hearing to determine what will happen. I suggest you speak with the lawyer that handled your DWI case or another that specializes in parole hearings.
Its not 100% automatic that you are going to be revoked. I have had a couple of clients recently who picked up misdemeanor charges while on parole and didnt get revoked. Talk to your PO and explain what happened. In my experience they will usually be very honest with you. In my other clients cases, they were both told that if they didnt go to jail they had nothing to worry about (in other words, probation or time served would be ok). On the other hand I have had other previous clients who were revoked for misdemeanors. So its hard to give you a definite answer of what will happen, but you need to tell your PO.
Technically speaking, you've violated your terms of parole by picking up a crime. Call your attorney ASAP.
I am licensed attorney who focuses on Serious DUI Cases such a 2nd DUIs, 3rd DUIs, 4th DUIs, and Felony DUIs and DMV hearings. I also have much experience handling car accident cases. Although the information I provide is helpful, it is not legal advice. Although Avvo makes it clear to consumers that attorney answers to questions are for general purposes only and do not establish an attorney-client relationship, some attorneys prefer to add their own disclaimers to answers. You can set your custom disclaimer here and it will be automatically added to your answers. Do NOT include any direct solicitations or contact information.
Our Rating is calculated using information the lawyer has included on their profile in addition to the information we collect from state bar associations and other organizations that license legal professionals.
