Revocation of Probation, Parole, or Extended Supervision:

A person facing revocation is entitled to an attorney at the revocation hearing.  Even if a person has given a statement admitting the allegations, the person can only be revoked if:

  1. Confinement is necessary to protect the public from further criminal activity by the offender; or
  2. The offender is in need of correctional treatment which can most effectively be provided if he is confined; or
  3. It would unduly depreciate the seriousness of the violation of probation were not revoked.

The attorneys at Herrick & Hart, S.C. will review the agent's file, interview witnesses, and examine alternatives to revocation.  Our attorneys are available to represent persons through all stages of a revocation proceeding.
