San Antonio Probation Violation Attorney Helping You Stay Out of Trouble
Parole violation can cause unneeded complications throughout Texas
Did you — accidentally or intentionally — violate the terms of your probation or parole? If you did, you need to contact an attorney as soon as possible. I may be able to reduce, minimize or even avoid the penalties you are subject to if you contact me immediately at the Law Office of Bill Baskette in San Antonio, Texas. At my law office, I handle probation cases — and all my clients — personally and professionally, offering straight talk and direct contact.
With more than 30 years of experience, including serving as a prosecutor and a judge in the district and county court, I know how to plead your case with county prosecutors and parole officers before they arrest you and file a motion to revoke parole or probation. When you come to me for help, you show the prosecutor or parole officer that you’re responsible and willing to work with authorities when you make a mistake with your probation. Admitting the mistake is the first step to having the court offer a reduced penalty or no penalty at all.
Your violation won’t just go away
Getting an attorney now will help you avoid problems later, as will being honest with the parole officer. Don’t hide in the hope that no one will notice that you never checked in, and always remember that penalties are almost always less severe when you cooperate with the police and the court. If you’ve used drugs, obtained a job with additional income or committed any other violation of your probation, contact me at my office immediately.
Are there other reasons to speak with a criminal defense lawyer when you violate probation in San Antonio or somewhere else in Texas? Of course! Texas probation law states that if you fail to notify the court of a probation violation, you’re subject to automatic arrest when the court finds out. If you’re arrested, you sit in jail until a court hearing and you won’t be eligible for a recognizance bond. As your lawyer, however, I work with the court to get bond posted for you or reduce the cost of the recognizance bond if the judge did set one.
