VirginiaProbation Violations Lawyers in City of Chesapeake, Virginia

Judges in state and federal court impose probation for many reasons. Probation helps avoid overcrowding in jails and prisons and recognizes that locking people up for long periods of time is an ineffective sentencing approach.


When it is alleged that a person violated probation in a misdemeanor or felony case, a VOP arrest warrant can be issued. After a probation hearing, the judge can often impose a harsher sentence or punishment such as incarceration.


If the violation was not substantial or willful, then important defenses might apply.


Contact a criminal defense attorney for violation of probation cases in City of Chesapeake, Virginia to discuss the allegation, the attorney fees involved, defenses, and possible consequences at sentencing.
