If you are accused of violating the conditions of your probation or parole, please contact our experienced attorneys in York, Pennsylvania today.

We will vigorously represent your best interests in all types of parole or probation violation issues, including instances in which it is alleged:

You did not contact your probation officer as required;
You moved and did not report your change of residence to your parole officer; or
You committed a new crime and are being held in jail on a detainer.

Legal Defense Following an Alleged Probation or Parole Violation:

If your probation officer believes that you have violated the terms and conditions of your probation, he or she can take you into custody immediately and place you in York County prison or you may be scheduled for an Administative hearing. If you are incarcerated, within a short period of time, you are entitled to a Gagnon hearing, where the superviser will determine whether you must remain in prison or should be released, pending a more thorough hearing.

Regardless of the outcome from the initial hearing, you will likley go before the court to determine whether you actually violated the terms of your parole or probation. This time, if you are found to have violated your conditions, the judge has to decide whether to re-sentence you.  You may have received probation originally but now you may receive a jail sentence.

At either of these hearings, our goal will be to obtain the best possible sentence and resolve any issues related to the violation. We will listen carefully to your concerns and give you our best legal advice for how to avoid future legal entanglements.
