A Tennessee Criminal Defense Lawyer, Fighting for Your Fair Treatment

In some situations, the probation department will attempt to impose additional requirements beyond those ordered by the judge. If you do not meet these requirements, you will often be charged with violating your probation

It is important for you to know that you can only be held to have violated terms of probation if you fail to meet a requirement ordered by the judge. Your probation officer, and his or her department, simply does not have this power. That won't stop them from trying to put you in jail for violating the terms they have imposed, however.

Fortunately, this lack of power to impose additional probation terms can be used in your defense if you are accused of violating them.

Penalties for probation violations are determined on a case-by-case basis, which is why it is so crucial to work with an experienced attorney who knows how to negotiate for your fair treatment. When you have failed a drug screen for example, you can often avoid jail time by passing the next two or three screens.
