Understanding Probation & Parole Violations

After you have been convicted of a crime, probation or parole may be one of the terms of your punishment. Parole or probation may be given on its own or it may be required for an early release from jail or prison. Any person who has allegedly violated their probation terms is subject to having their probation or parole revoked completely. In order to try to prevent having your parole or probation revoked, it is important that you seek experienced legal representation right away. Keeping you out of jail or prison is our top priority when you choose our firm.

A few of the common situations which may lead to parole or probation violations include:

  • Failing a mandatory drug test
  • Testing positive for alcohol use
  • Failing to show up for a mandatory drug test
  • Failing to pay the necessary court costs/fines
  • Failing to adhere to community service terms
  • Committing a crime while on probation/parole
  • Failing to pay obligations such as child support
  • Failing to report to your parole/probation officer on time or at all

Request a Revocation Hearing in Dauphin County

Before your probation or parole is formally revoked and your punishment is served, you have the right to a hearing. Many people are not aware that they can request this hearing because they are not told to sign the necessary form while in jail or for any other number of reasons. You are entitled to a preliminary revocation hearing and a final revocation hearing, during both of which you should have strong representation by your side.

Having a Harrisburg probation and parole violation attorney at the hearing can ensure that your rights and best interests are fully protected. At Shaffer & Engle, our attorneys have more than 65 years of combined experience representing clients like yourself against all types of charges, including probation and parole violations.

We're here to represent you in your revocation hearings and all criminal defense matters. Call us at (717) 268-4287 to request a free consultation.
