Charged with a Violation? Call (919) 887-8040.
When you have been convicted of a crime, the judge determines which punishments should be doled out. In many cases, probation is given to offenders on its own without jail or prison time. However, many offenders are able to receive probation after serving a partial sentence. During this period, you are expected to follow very specific rules and guidelines given by the judge.
At Sandman, Finn & Fitzhugh, our Raleigh probation violation lawyers provide aggressive defense of violations. To learn how we can help, call (919) 887-8040 today.

Our firm has 50 years of combined experience and we are prepared to defend you against any type of alleged violation of your probation.
Types of Probation Violations
There are many different ways you could violate your probation, depending on the terms of your initial agreement signed by the judge. In most cases, you are expected to follow the law and not get into legal trouble again during your probation period. However, there are many unpredictable circumstances which could lead to a false accusation or unavoidable situations, such as having no transportation to meet your probation officer.
The most common probation violations include:
- Failure to appear in court
- Failure to meet with your probation officer
- Failure to pay mandatory fees
- Failure to do community service
- Failure to pay restitution
- Committing a crime while on probation
- Possessing a firearm
- Failing a drug test
