Probation Violations

If you are accused of violating your probation, it is essential that you know your rights. A probation violation proceeding is different from other kinds of criminal cases. You need an experienced criminal defense attorney who is experienced with this particular type of criminal proceeding.

Steve Minert’s Experience As A Prosecutor Is A Plus

Unfortunately, many defendants accused of violating their probation choose not to hire a lawyer because they do not understand the severity of their charges or do not feel like they can influence the outcome of their case. Consequently, many criminal defense lawyers have little or no experience in probation violation matters.

Attorney Steve Minert is an exception to this rule. Because Steve has worked as a deputy prosecutor for Ada County, he understands how probation violation cases work and how a successful defense may be raised. Further, Steve’s experience as a prosecutor helps his clients understand what to expect in probation violation matters, and when it may be favorable to seek a plea arrangement that minimizes criminal penalties.

Minert Law Office defends clients against a wide variety of probation violations, including:

  • Failure to complete community service or required classes
  • Alcohol-related violations
  • Drug-related violations
  • Weapons-related violations
  • Commission of a new crime during a period of probation
