Probation revocation cases are different from new offenses because guilt or innocence is not an issue. That doesn’t mean that we’ll just lay down and take what probation says as gospel. Some times the allegations against you are untrue or biased. Sometimes the probation officer has their own motivations or agenda for turning in a probation violation. In these circumstances we have the means and passion to fight back.
In other probation revocation cases, however, the human side becomes much more important -if the probation violation is true, was there a compelling reason that explains the slip up? Whether it’s a sick family member, losing housing or employment, or a relapse into drug or alcohol use, we understand that sometimes a violation doesn’t warrant revocation and it’s our job in those instances to make the probation officer, the prosecutor, and/or the judge understand your point of view.
