Probation is an alternative to incarceration in jail. Mr. Discioarro will present compelling evidence to the court that you play an important role in your family, and can make important contributions to society. Your criminal defense attorney from the firm will do all possible to convince the court that you won't re-offend, and will make every effort to work with the court to arrive at terms of probation which will allow you to pursue life in a positive manner and which will meet the requirements of the law. You can be charged with probation violation if you get into legal trouble, fail to show up for a drug test, fail a drug test, do not complete your community service or miss checking in with your probation officer.
In such a case, the probation officer can file documents, called specifications, with the court which order the individual to appear for a "violation of probation hearing". At the hearing, should the Probation Department prove the individual violated the terms of his probation, the court can render a decision of guilty and may sentence the individual to jail, sometimes for the period of time that exceeds the original sentence for which they were on probation.
