When you are on probation, you are at the mercy of your probation officer. They monitor everything about your life and sometimes impose harsh restrictions. Miss an appointment? Slip up accidentally? Back to jail you go. It’s like being sentenced without a trial.
At Hoskins & Penton, we will take your side against the invasive probation system. We have over 50 years’ combined experience as criminal defense lawyers, so we have probably seen a case like yours. We have represented clients in DUI, misdemeanor, and more serious felony probation violations. If you are in Clearwater or the surrounding areas, we can smooth over probation issues and help you get your life back together.
There can be a wide range of reasons as to why probation is violated. As experienced attorneys, we understand that it is not always intentional. There can be situations beyond your control; you may be asleep when your probation officer knocks at your door. You may move to a new address and somehow your probation officer is left without the updated address.
When our clients face a problem with probation, we find out exactly what happened, what caused it, and whether or not it was willful on the part of the client.
If a person violates probation and goes to jail, they lose their right to bail and often face staying in jail until the matter has been resolved. With our legal help and representation, we are able to quickly resolve these violations, and get our clients out of jail and back on the path of successfully completing probation.
Our first commitment is to our clients, and we work to get them back on track.
