Lake County Violation of Parole Attorney
Serving Clients in Lake County, Chaffee County and El Paso County, Colorado
If you or a loved one is charged in the state of Colorado with a parole violation, you’ll need help from a skilled and experienced El Paso County violation of parole lawyer. Being accused of a parole violation is a serious charge that requires the most aggressive possible defense. Otherwise, the accused individual may be immediately remanded to jail or prison and may also face additional criminal charges.
When a parole violation is charged, the individual faces an uphill battle for two reasons. One is that a judge – not a jury of peers in a trial – will make a final determination during a court hearing. Secondly, “beyond a reasonable doubt” is not the standard in parole violation hearings; a prosecutor has only to prove the likelihood that the terms of parole were violated. If you or a loved one is charged with a parole violation in Colorado, get the help you need by calling the Leadville law offices of Chaffee County violation of parole attorney Lindsey Parlin.
PRECISE RULES FOR PAROLE
Many people confuse probation and parole, but the two are very different. Because Colorado’s parole system is designed for keeping people out of jail and prison, parolees are required to comply with very precise conditions to keep their freedom. No violation of these rules is tolerated. A parolee can be charged with a parole violation for these many reasons, including:
- Failure to pay court-ordered fines
- Failure to submit to or pass a drug test
- Failure to complete community service requirements
- Failure to appear at an appointment with a parole officer
- Failure to enroll in or complete court-ordered education or therapy
- Failure to register as a sex offender (if convicted of a sex offense)
- Being accused of any new crime while on parole, such as drinking alcohol and driving, or committing a violent crime
If you have been accused of any of these violations, contact a criminal defense attorney at once. One of the best criminal defense attorneys, Lindsey Parlin, is available to review your case, provide you with legal resources, and work tirelessly to achieve the best possible outcome for your case.
