This is the first post in a series of questions which will address the question of “what happens when probation is revoked in Arkansas?” I feel it is necessary to write on this topic as many probationers are unsure of the potential consequences associated with violating their supervision. Having a better understanding of one’s situation can result in their making better choices while on probation. It can also assist with formulating a defense in the event that one does find themselves accused of violating their probation. The goal of this series is to provide such information. It is also my goal to provide insights which will assist with the selection of a criminal defense attorney. If you or a loved one are in need of assistance then contact my office today to speak with a Little Rock lawyer.
I will be addressing several topics over my coming articles. Some of the issues which I will analyze include:
- The reasons for which an Arkansas Court will revoke probation
- The potential outcomes of a revocation hearing
- Possible defenses against a revocation
There are multiple reasons why I am addressing these issues. First, it is not uncommon for a probationer to wonder what will happen, in the event of a violation, even though they are still within the terms of their probation. Second, attending a revocation hearing does not necessarily mean that a probationer’s supervision will be rescinded. It may be possible to defend against the revocation or to gain a reinstatement with additional terms of supervision. Finally, understanding the strategies for defending against a revocation are important to one having reasonable expectations.
