Generally a conviction for misdemeanor or felony charges will involve a term of Georgia probation. If you, or someone you care about violates the conditions of GA probation laws, the consequences can be drastic and life-changing. There can be many reasons for such a violation of probation in GA, but whatever the reason, you should waste no time in contacting an attorney with experience in this area of the law, to ensure the best defense possible.
Because our clients come to us from all over south Georgia, at the McCranie Law Firm we are very aware that procedures for pursuing probation violation in Georgia can vary from county to county. Georgia Law provides for the required terms and conditions of probation. Judges can also add additional terms and conditions.
Regular examples are:
- * Have No Contact with Certain People or Places
- * Require Drug Counseling, Testing and or Treatment
- * Perform Community Service Hours
- * Pay Restitution to the Victim
These are just some (not all) of the additional conditions that Judges can add to probation.
I handle every case from start to finish; it is my knowledge of the law as well as these county-to-county differences that will dictate your defense.
