At a probation hearing, you have already been sentenced and you are accused of violating the terms and conditions of your Judgment and Sentence. The Court could impose any or all of your previously suspended jail time or fine.
Unlike your original criminal charge where the standard of proof is beyond a reasonable doubt, the standard of proof for a probation violation is preponderance of evidence.
You have the right to be represented by an Attorney at a Probation Violation Hearing. An experienced Attorney such as Mr. Chmelewski can represent your best interests to the court – explaining all mitigating factors on your behalf.
Mr. Chmelewski will review your Judgment and Sentence, the probation violation certification that has been filed against you and speak with the Deputy Prosecuting Attorney and the probation officer assigned to your case.
If you are accused of violating the terms and conditions of your probation you need to retain the professional services of Mr. Chmelewski who has the education, training, and experience to mitigate the damage at your probation violation hearing.
