Violation Of Probation And Community Control

If you are on probation or community control, there are strict rules that you must abide by that state what you can do, who you can be with and where you can go. If you do not follow any of these rules, you could find yourself charged with a probation violation, which carries serious consequences.

Experienced Criminal Defense Representation

Though you may feel like there is nothing you can do to defend yourself against charges of probation or house arrest violation, with a skilled attorney by your side, you may be able to fight the charges or get them reduced.

I am D. Scott Rieth, a skilled Bradenton probation violation attorney and former prosecutor with more than 20 years of experience. I represent individuals who face post-conviction issues like probation or community control violations in the Florida cities of Bradenton and Sarasota and surrounding areas.

Community Control Violations

Probation and community control are alternatives to jail that allow you to continue to work, go to school and care for your family while serving out your sentence. However, they both come with strict rules that must be adhered to.

One of the conditions of your probation or community control is to keep a clean criminal record. If you are charged with another crime while on probation, you will also be charged with a substantive probation violation. As a result, you may be put in jail without bond. I will represent you throughout every step of your case, including setting up a bond hearing to help you get out of jail. I will take every step necessary to keep you out of jail, including negotiating with the state or getting you into applicable treatment programs.

If You Have Violated Parole Conditions, I Can Help

If you failed to show up for a meeting with your probation officer, didn't pay required fines or were not in your home when you were supposed to be, you could face a technical violation of probation. I will negotiate with the prosecutor or judge on your behalf for an appropriate sentence. If these negotiations fail to produce the best outcome, you can rest assured that I am fully prepared to take your case to court, where I will aggressively defend your interests.

When you hire me as your lawyer, I take the time to hear your side of the story and review the consequences surrounding your arrest. This attention to detail will help me develop the best defense strategy for you.
