NO TIME TO SERVE ON FELONY PROBATION VIOLATION

Our client faced guidelines recommending 1 year to 1 year 6 months after his probation was violated. The prosecution asked for a year to serve. With the help of our client's amazing employers, we demonstrated that putting our client in jai and having him lose his job would be a terrible mistake. We breathed a massive sigh of relief when the judge did not sentence him to a single day in jail.

NO TIME TO SERVE ON FELONY PROBATION VIOLATION

Our client was charged with violations in two separate cities after a minor new conviction. After she was initially held on no bond by the magistrate, we acted quickly and got her before the court within a week. Not only was she released from jail, she was released from supervised probation completely after we showed the court her glowing character letters. She never went to jail in the second city and was again sentenced to no jail time and released from supervised probation!

NO TIME TO SERVE ON FELONY PROBATION VIOLATION

Like far too many people, our client had been wrapped up in the criminal justice system for over a decade on probation. Despite the fact that she had completely turned her life around and had been successfully employed for years, she was violated based on minor reasons and dragged back into the clutches of the courts. We gathered dozens of letters supporting her which ultimately helped convinced the judge to impose no jail time.

This was a tough violation to handle. Our client was a good and decent person, but he had been violated four times for the same minor behavior. Over the prosecution's objection, we managed to convince the judge to go along with a plan to continue the case for 3 months to give our client the opportunity to prove himself. He took advantage of his chance, and the final result was that he didn't serve a single day.
