I have a client in Milton, Georgia who has been charged with probation violation. Probation is given to persons convicted of a crime, so that they may live outside of the jail. This gives the convicted person the opportunity to continue to work and prove that he or she is a law abiding and productive citizen.
As long as the convicted person abides by the instructions of the judge and the laws of the state of Georgia, he or she should be able to serve this sentence on probation.
If the person on probation violates any of the rules of probation, or breaks other laws, then that person will be charged with probation violation and if convicted they will serve the remainder of their time in jail.
Probation is an agreement between the court and the convicted person. Any possible breach of that agreement by the convicted person should be discussed with a probation violation attorney.
If you have questions about the above, or if you have been charged with probation violation, contact the probation violation defense attorney Scott Miller in Alpharetta, Georgia for a free consultation. 770-408-1001
