Parole Violation Defense Attorneys in Troy

Protecting You from Harsh Penalties & Lengthy Prison Sentences

Depending on the circumstances, certain convicted individuals who are serving jail time may have the opportunity to be released early on parole. When on parole – which lasts for a certain amount of time determined by a judge – the individual must adhere to certain rules and uphold various responsibilities. Should you fail to adhere to your parole conditions, you could face serious penalties – you might even be ordered to return to prison to finish your sentence.

Most criminal defense attorneys are inexperienced at handling parole violations. Many attorneys think these cases involve just negotiating a plea bargain, like they do in criminal court. However, parole violations are much more complicated than that and require special knowledge on how to handle them. At Frost & Kavanaugh, our attorneys keenly understand parole violations and the rules that apply to them. Other attorneys often call us for help in navigating these types of cases.

If you have been accused of violating your parole, hope is not lost. With a skilled Troy parole violation attorney on your side, you have the chance to fight the severe penalties of parole violation. At Frost & Kavanaugh, we are committed to helping our clients avoid further prison time by building strong cases on their behalf.

Contact us as soon as possible – the sooner we can get started on your case, the better our chances of success. Call (518) 730-4222.

The Impact of a Parole Violation

When on parole, you are closely monitored and have limited rights. These safeguards can be encroaching and difficult to adhere to.

For example, you may be required to:

  • Report regularly to a parole officer
  • Live in a certain area
  • Remain in a certain area without traveling outside of the defined region
  • Notify your parole officer of any changes in employment
  • Refrain from owning or possessing a gun
  • Agree to searches of your residence, possessions, and person

Quite often, parole violations are minor slip-ups that cause no harm. Some violations are even committed without the parolee realizing it.

Possible penalties for violating parole include:

  • Return to prison to complete the original sentence
  • A longer jail/prison sentence
  • Fines
  • Mandatory community service
  • Mandatory participation in a rehabilitation program

Possible Defenses

If you are facing penalties for violating parole, you are not alone. Day in and day out, decent people face serious penalties for minor mistakes or brief moments of poor judgment.
