Santa Clara Parole Violations Lawyers
Probation is a tool to rehabilitate, not necessarily to punish. However, judges sometimes prefer to impose harsh punishments rather than take steps to avoid additional crimes. Violating probation is a serious matter. However, with the help of an attorney taking an aggressive and proactive approach to the criminal case, it does not have to be an automatic trip back to jail.

As former criminal prosecutors, the attorneys at the Law Offices of Valencia, Ippolito & Bowman have an in-depth knowledge of the judicial system.

Our law firm has won numerous awards, including being named Criminal Defense Firm of the Year by San Jose Magazine.
California Penal Code 1203 PC — along with related codes that currently govern probation — was enacted in 1872, but did not address the issue of probation until 1903. Since that time, various amendments were added that covered expunging criminal records, imposing jail and fines for violations, and restricting probation for burglary, rape or kidnapping.
We understand the stakes in a probation violation case. You could be taken into custody without the chance of bail. Punishment for the violation could result in a return to prison to finish up your sentence for the original crime. However, prison is not necessarily automatic following a probation violation. Let a criminal defense lawyer at our firm explore all your options.
