In California, individuals who have been convicted of a crime may be placed on probation. (Penal Code §1203). Probation is defined as “the suspension of a sentence’s imposition or execution and the order of conditional and revocable release in the community.”

If you choose to be placed on probation, you will receive a shorter jail sentence at the time of your conviction; however, if you violate your probation in the future, you may be subject to a longer sentence.

What Is The Difference Between Formal and Informal Probation?

There are two types of probation: Formal (Felony Probation) and Informal or Summary (Misdemeanor Probation)

What Is Formal Probation?

Formal probation requires you to maintain an active, ongoing relationship with the probation department, the nature of which depends on the circumstances of your case. For instance, if you are convicted of drug-related felonies, the court may require you to check in frequently with the probation department and submit urine samples for drug testing.

At the time of your sentencing, the probation department will also write a formal report recommending the terms of your probation and the length of your jail sentence.

What Does Informal or Summary Probation Entail?

On informal probation, you are neither assigned a probation officer nor required to check in with the probation department, with the exception of certain misdemeanor sex offenses. You must simply comply with the terms of your probation.

What is a Probation Violation?

When an individual is placed on probation, he or she is given “Probation Terms.” A probationary period is an instruction to do or refrain from doing something. Examples: “Pay a $50 fine to the court” or “Do not drive with any alcohol in your system.” Every person placed on probation in California is ordered not to break the law.

Common causes of probation violations include being arrested or convicted of a new offense, failing to pay court-ordered fines and fees, and failing to perform jail or community service.

Am I permitted to contest the violation in California?

Absolutely. In California, individuals accused of violating their probation are entitled to a hearing before a judge to determine whether they willfully violated their probation. You may present evidence, choose to testify, and cross-examine witnesses called against you at this hearing. You do not have the right to a jury at this hearing, and the rules of evidence are extremely lax, so evidence that would not normally be admissible against you (e.g., hearsay) may be used to prove the violation.

What Will Happen if the Judge Finds that I Have Violated Probation?

There are several possible outcomes in a probation violation setting.

What is a Probation Modification?

A probation modification is a modification or change to the terms of probation. A modification will either add, alter, or remove terms to allow you to engage in conduct that deviates from the court’s original order. To modify your probation, you must file a motion with the court, per section 1203.3 of the Penal Code.

Examples of typical modifications to probation include:

This is a discretionary statute, which means that you must convince the judge that modifying the terms of probation will serve the interests of justice. A request for lighter or easier probation terms is unlikely to be granted without a compelling justification.

Questions To Ask When Choosing Your Criminal Defense Attorney

Not before consulting with a Riverside probation violation lawyer. There may be some advantages to admitting you violated probation in certain circumstances, but you won’t know for sure unless you speak with an expert first. A Riverside probation violation attorney with a strong criminal defense background, such as those at Kareem Law Group APC, will be able to properly advise you on whether you should admit the violation or fight it at the probation revocation hearing.

A Riverside probation violation attorney with a strong criminal defense background, such as those at Kareem Law Group, APC will be able to properly advise you on whether you should admit the violation or fight it at the probation revocation hearing.

Only good probation keeps you out of jail if you’re on probation. Any probation violation will jeopardize your freedom. Keep your freedom at all costs. Never quit! As soon as you are charged, contact Kareem Law for a skilled probation violation attorney. You may have a better chance than you think. Most probation violations are unintentional or unavoidable. A traffic jam that keeps you from community service can bring you back before the judge. We may be able to restore your probation status or reduce your jail sentence if we can convince the judge that your violation was unintentional.

After probation, Penal Code section 1203.4 allows expungement. An expungement lets you withdraw a guilty plea or set aside a guilty verdict at trial, dismissing the case against you as if you were never convicted.

This has limited benefits. If your conviction is expunged, you don’t have to tell employers. However, if you apply for government work, you will likely be specifically asked if you have been convicted of any crime, even if it was expunged.

Even if you did everything the court asked, Federal Immigration Law could still classify you as “eligible for deportation” or “ineligible for admission” based on an expunged conviction.

Our Los Angeles expungement attorney helps clients with expungement and motions to terminate probation because we believe your criminal record should not define your life.

However, going up there without a California probation violation attorney who knows and cares about defending against this crime, which so many people face every day, puts you at risk. Avoid this. Call now for a free consultation.

I was faced with a case that never in my life I’d imagine to be dealing with that could’ve had detrimental effects on my life and career ending. Kareem was the best defense I had to get my life back together. From start to finish Kareem was very attentive, informative and determined to help get this fixed and he did! The case was never filed! Thank you!

I was arrested and was facing 2 felonies in October and spent some time sitting in county jail. After calling tens of lawyers to help I immediately knew Kareem would provide the help I was looking for. He walked me through the entire court process and was very reassuring that I had nothing to worry about. It is a great feeling when you have a confident lawyer behind you. Kareem managed to get my case dismissed and I have no charges on my record now. I don’t think I would have this result if it weren’t for his help. I would recommend him to anyone. He knows what he’s doing and he is the man for the job.

Before hiring Kareem Law I made the mistake of listening to some ads for personal injury attorneys on the radio. I did not know what to expect since this was my first time needing to hire an attorney. The first office never returned my calls and never connected me with an attorney. I thought attorneys wanted to help their clients not treat them like dirt. I found Kareem's office after a family member told me of an attorney who did excellent work on his personal injury case.From the first call with Kareem he created a strong relationship with me where I felt appreciated and heard. Mr. Ramadan was always available when I needed answers and did a fabulous job settling my case.

I was very fortunate to have had Kareem as my attorney. From our very first conversation, I could tell he was very knowledgeable and experienced. His empathy and care for my situation, were encouraging and made me feel safe. Kareem was very personable, reachable, and communicated clearly. Kareem put a lot of effort to get the case dismissed and achieve a complete resolution without the additional stress of a trial. I am beyond grateful to him!

Never in my life, did I think I would need a criminal defense attorney. A close family member committed a federal crime and suddenly I was searching for a criminal defense attorney. I submitted an inquiry to all lawyers in the Upland area and I am so thankful that Attorney Kareem was quick to reply on a Sunday afternoon!The next day, he was already doing a jail visit with my family member. The following day, we were meeting and discussing the case in his office. Right from the beginning,Kareem expressed his care and compassion for us and my incarcerated family member. He also made us feel very comfortable telling us a personal story of his that made him appreciate nurses, which my mom and I are! This life journey of his, made us feel that he knows the value of life and our family member would be in excellent hands.Kareem was always available to answer all our questions. If you call him or text him, he will always respond right away or within a few hours. This was an extremely difficult time in our lives and Kareem was always there to ease our minds. When trying to find an attorney who is going to save your life or a close family members, you have to fully trust your lawyer and Kareem is that man. He strongly advocated for my family member and got him released from jail with a mental health diversion. This was the goal from the beginning and we could not be more thankful to Attorney Kareem for the outcome.
