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.

    “Thank you for going above and beyond for the client I referred to you, but more importantly, thank you for the fantastic result. She was my most important client, and you really came through.”

    Attorney John D.

  • He treated me with respect and always made me feel like my case was his only priority.

    “Because I live out of state, I needed representation that I could trust to best represent me and my interests. Jeff Engle provided regular, thorough counsel throughout the legal process. He treated me with respect and always made me feel like my case was his only priority.”

    KH

  • He took the time to explain the process, understand the facts of my case and provide suggestions like retaining a private investigator.

    “I came to Shaffer & Engle Law Offices searching for hope after I entered a plea in my criminal case. I had a false allegation filed against me for a sexual offense that I did not commit. I was involved with another lawyer for 2 ½ years, when it came down to day before court we felt he was not prepared to represent me. I either took the plea of "Nolo Contendere" or went to jail the day of the trial. I felt trapped. I had this allegation against me and I was innocent. I met with the Attorney Engle. He took the time to explain the process, understand the facts of my case and provide suggestions like retaining a private investigator. He offered to represent me and quickly moved to withdraw my guilty plea. That was granted by the court and we proceeded to prepare for trial. They uncovered many things that our other lawyer did not bother to investigate. They met with character witnesses after hours to make sure my defense would be solid. Long story short, the DA in my case withdrew the charges. I went from a convicted man to completely being vindicated. Shaffer and Engle Law Offices also were able to assist me in another matter relating to the criminal case, but in civil court. The same results, all charges were dismissed. I appreciate the work they did, their prompt service, care and attention they showed to me and my family. I found their services to be affordable when compared to what they did for me. I would highly recommend them for anyone charged with a crime that they did not do.”

I did my homework before seeking out Jeff, as I needed an expert in Family and Education law. He was highly recommended to me, and he did not disappoint. Give him a call and schedule a consult. You will get an honest assessment of your situation, and he will work with you to ensure that you get the best outcome possible.”
