Violations of Probation carry significant sanctions. Just being arrested, even if you’re not formally charged, can result in your being resentenced to a much more severe disposition. Also, the safeguards of a regular criminal case are relaxed, so the burden of proof is much lower for VOP’s. You don’t even have a right to a speedy trial. For all these reasons and more, it is crucial for you to find a good criminal lawyer to fight for you.
