If you are convicted of a DUI, you will be put on probation after serving out the initial part of your sentence. For example, you may be sentenced to 10 days of jail time, and the rest of the year, 355 days, on probation. Violating your probation is a serious offense, because it lets the courts know that they should not give you another chance. Probation violations, especially if the violation is another DUI arrest, will be punished severely by prosecutors and judges, unless you hire an expert attorney to help you fight your case.
An experienced Orlando DUI defense attorney can challenge prosecutors on the evidence and statements against you. If your probation officer has asserted that you violated your probation, you need to speak with an attorney, or you could be facing the maximum penalties on your newest charges, which, if a second or third offense DUI, can include huge monetary fines (in some cases up to $10,000) and extended jail time (in some cases 5 or more years).
At Ali & Blankner, we understand how detrimental a probation violation can be. It can lead to extremely severe punishments and can ruin the defendant's life, by preventing them from getting certain jobs and marring the personal record that follows them around throughout their life. We are dedicated to helping our clients with their DUI probation violation charges by examining their cases and determining if there are any weaknesses in the prosecution's case. If a weakness is found, we may be able to use that to argue for reduced charges or a reduced sentence on your behalf.
