I’ve been accused of violating my probation because of police contact. My fiancé admitted to hitting me and said I didn’t hit her and pushed her away and the local police closed the case. We have witnesses that were present that attest that I did not either. No cops were called. Her dad took her there because he has a vendetta against me. The probation officer I have in another county when I reported it said I allegedly violated because of aggressive behavior and assumed I was drinking. My fiancé and the witnesses attest I did not. I have an arraignment for the violation in a few weeks. What are the chances and probability this will be dropped or would this be jail time or longer probation?
It’s possible you could get charged and if so you will want to fight it if you are innocent....a violation can have serious consequences, to include punishment on the underlying charge. Have you consulted an attorney yet?
This answer is provided for informational purposes only and does not constitute legal advice or the formation of an attorney-client relationship.
Your chances in most criminal matters improved greatly if you hire an experienced criminal defense attorney to fight for you. Attorney John English has a good track record with these cases.
The opinion that I express should not be considered to be legal advice that can be relied on. It is based only on the limited amount of information provided rather than doing a thorough review of all of the important information that is required to give accurate legal advice. You should consult with an attorney that has extensive background in the area of the law that your are inquiring about.
