Charged With Violating Probation In The Miami Area?
Probation violations are handled differently than other types of criminal offenses. The burden of proof is much lighter for the prosecutor, and the hearings happen much faster, with little time for discovery. A client needs an experienced criminal defense lawyer to protect his interests in this situation.
