If you have been accused of violating probation in New York City, you are entitled to a hearing before a judge. In these hearings, the Probation Department will introduce evidence that you violated Probation in some way and ask the judge to terminate your probation and impose a jail term. You will have the opportunity to testify at the hearing. It is very important to review all of the evidence against you with an experienced New York City Probation Attorney to determine what the proper course of action is.
It may be in your best interest to accept a short jail sentence and be done with probation or it may be the case where the Probation Department is simply wrong and an argument can be made to the judge that you ave not violated the terms of your probation. New York City probation judges can be very tough on probationers that they believe are not living up to the promise that they made to the court at the time they plead guilty or were found guilty.
