If you are currently on probation, you should consider yourself fortunate that you are not in jail. Probation is a contract, between you and the court, to avoid jail time. If you have been brought into court for a probation violation, it is alleged you broke that contract. Some probation violations are technical in nature; some are substantive. You need an attorney who knows and understands these differences and who can advocate on your behalf as to why you need more time on probation as opposed to an activation of your jail sentence. It is advisable that you not try to do this on your own. Call the Law Offices of Ryan B. Addison to schedule a consult.
