Trust In Our Experienced Pennsylvania Criminal Defense Attorney
After you have been convicted for certain criminal offenses, probation is often part of the sentence that you are given by the judge. This period of probation may be the main form of punishment or it may be mandated after you have served your prison term. Whatever the case may be, there are very strict rules of probation that you must follow no matter what.
If you have allegedly failed to follow the terms and guidelines of your probation, you could face the consequences of a violation. At the Thompson Law, we have dealt with a number of probation violation cases and can provide you with quality legal care.
