|Probation Violation? Harter & Schottland can help.|
If you fail to comply with the terms of your court-ordered Probation, Conditional Discharge, or Supervision in Illinois the prosecutor can file a Petition to Revoke. This action will bring your case back to court for resentencing.
The criminal defense attorneys of Harter & Schottland represent clients who are facing a Petition to Revoke due to an alleged Probation, Conditional Discharge or Supervision Violation. We will listen carefully to your description of events and develop a strategy for winning the petition and minimizing the negative consequences to you.
Harter & Schottland: Something More Aggressive
We may deny that a Probation Violation occurred. Perhaps you were substantially in compliance, having missed an hour or two of community service or a court ordered substance abuse meeting. In such a case we can help you get the time you need to comply with the court order.
A Petition to Revoke does not necessarily mean you are automatically going to jail. However, after giving you Probation, Conditional Discharge, or Supervision instead of jail time for the original offense, the court does not look kindly on defendants who fail to comply with the terms of their sentence.
To prevail at a Petition to Revoke hearing, you should be represented by an aggressive attorney who will leave no stone unturned in an effort to achieve your goal. The attorneys of Harter & Schottland will fight to preserve your freedom.
