Probation Violations

East Brunswick Probation Violation Attorney

How Probation Works in New Jersey

Being on probation carries with it specific terms and conditions assigned to you by the courts. You are obligated to comply with the terms imposed upon you by the Court and your Probation Officer if you:

  • Receive a suspended sentence of incarceration
  • Receive a term of probation following a conviction
  • Are placed on supervisory treatment as part of a conditional discharge or pre-trial intervention ("PTI")

Have you been accused of violating your probation? Contact our Freehold probation violation lawyer today at (866) 760-6430.

Some of the typical probation conditions include:

  • Reporting to the Probation Officer when instructed
  • Random drug testing
  • Maintaining employment
  • Community service
  • Payment of all fines imposed
  • Drug and alcohol counseling
  • Anger management
  • Promptly advising the Probation Officer of any arrest or contact with law enforcement officials
  • Staying out of trouble

If you violate these terms, you risk having your probation revoked, winding up in jail, or having your probation period extended, or the terms of your probation made more severe. You will need the aggressive and dedicated services of a criminal defense attorney to minimize these consequences, argue on your behalf in court, or work to give you a second chance.

Probation Violation Consequences in New Jersey

If the defendant violates any of the terms or conditions during their probation, they can be charged with a violation of probation (VOP), have their non-custodial sentence revoked, and be sent to a jail or prison term.

Your failure to comply with any of the terms imposed may result in a violation of probation charge being brought against you. Upon the filing of the violation of probation charge, the Court may remand you to the custody of the Department of Corrections in the county jail pending a hearing. If the Court finds that you have not substantially complied with the conditions of probation, then you can be sentenced to a custodial term of jail or prison.

If you are on a supervisory treatment for a conditional discharge or PTI, then you may face trial on the original charges. Depending upon your individual circumstances and the facts surrounding your case, even if you have failed to comply with probation, it is possible to avoid being remanded to jail or prison.

Types of probation violations include:

  • Failure to meet with your probation officer
  • Failure to keep curfews
  • Positive results in random drug testing or other tests
  • Associating with other criminals
  • Criminal activity
  • Failure to pay court costs, fines, or fees
  • Failure to attend drug or alcohol treatment programs or counseling
  • Failure to complete community service requirements

If you violate any of the terms of your probation, the penalties you risk will depend on the seriousness of the violation. When warranted, your probation officer may require you to appear before a judge and a warrant for your arrest may be issued. Having the benefit of a competent Freehold probation violation attorney can go a long way towards minimizing the consequences you face.

    "My case had a successful outcome."
    Ryan was compassionate, intelligent, efficient and thorough; he gave good advice, represented me in court, and was successful in winning a reduction in my property taxes. I wholeheartedly recommend him. I know he handles other types of cases as well.

    "Great job protecting my future"
    Ryan was a trusted adviser throughout the course of my legal issues. I was unfamiliar with legal proceedings and Ryan was able to explain to me my legal situation, and risks associated with various defenses and decisions I had to make. He took the time to explain all the scenarios to my satisfaction which gave me piece of mind and comfort. Ryan was also very responsive through various forms of communications (phone, email, text) which made keeping in contact convenient throughout the process. Ryan showed up on time (early in fact) to various appointments and appeared to handle relationship building effectively with opposing attorneys and the prosecutor. At the end of the day, I was very satisfied with the work done by Ryan as the outcome of my legal matter was better than I had expected and kept my reputation in tact, which undoubtedly will help me pursue my future career/professional ambitions.

    "Professionalism at its best"
    Mr. Gilbert has made my case easy and clear to understand without all the legal jargon. He took time to help me clearly understand my case and kept me updated with all occurrences. Also, the case had been postponed and he waited alongside and had a friendly chat at the nearby Starbucks and besides giving me a great case result, he made me feel as if I had someone by my side. Patient, honest, and soft spoken, Ryan is not someone else whom just told me what to do and I just say yes too, like previous attorneys I had. I will always suggest and use Ryan Gilbert as my attorney.
    - Former Client
    "Attentive, fast responding, professional, expert"
    Attentive, fast responding, professional and expert is how I would describe the attention and service that I received from Mr. Gilbert. He solved my matter quickly and explained in very clear terms each step and set expectation for action on all sides. I was very pleased with how my matter was resolved and would recommend Mr. Gilbert to those requiring legal services. If needed I would absolutely seek Mr. Gilbert's council again.

    I found myself in quite a situation and Ryan could not have been more helpful in my time of need. Ryan worked tirelessly and did whatever he could to secure for me the best possible outcome.
