Probation Revocation

TAIT & HALL LAW is always available to help you with your legal questions.

Probation Violation

In Arizona, offenders can be sentenced to probation terms in lieu of jail or may enter the probation system following a jail term. Once in the probation system, offenders are held to strict rules and regulations for compliance. These can include community service residency restrictions, mandatory appointments, and many more. Anyone caught violating their probation terms may be charged with a probation violation, among other possible charges. Probation violations in Arizona carry serious criminal penalties. Probation may be revoked, and offenders can be sentenced to lengthy jail or prison terms for a suspected violation. If you or someone you know is facing charges for probation violation, there is a lot on the line. You need an experienced criminal defense lawyer on your side.

Probation Revocation Overview:

Arizona has a reputation for strict law enforcement. Individuals placed on probation instead of jail or prison time must still meet challenging expectations. Oftentimes, a judge will sentence an offender to probation as an alternative to prison for first-time offenders. Those completing jail sentences may also face probation terms lasting long after release. The terms set forth for each Arizona probationer may vary, but typically include:

  • Forfeiture of Fourth Amendment rights, granting law enforcement permission to search your person, home, or vehicle at will.
  • Ongoing random and scheduled drug and alcohol screening.
  • Tight restrictions on traveling outside county or state limits.
  • Mandatory education and awareness programs.
  • Orders to pay fines, fees, and victim restitution on time.
  • Reporting to community service obligations.
  • Prohibitions on relationships, types of employment, and other lifestyle restrictions.

Depending on the terms set forth in the probation agreement more restrictions may apply, including limitations on computer use or internet access. Probationers can have difficulty conforming to the number of expectations set forth by the state. In many cases, probation violators are unaware they’ve committed a violation. Regardless of intent, those suspected to be in violation of their probation agreement will likely face probation violation charges and enhanced sentences for any new criminal charges.

Anyone suspected of a probation violation, regardless of severity, faces immediate arrest and the possibility of remaining in jail without bail. There are no juries at probation hearings. A judge will listen to both arguments, weigh any evidence presented, and make a ruling. In probation violation cases, the amount of evidence necessary for conviction is minimal. It is imperative you fight probation violation charges with the aid of a defense attorney familiar with the probation system.

The penalties for violating probation typically correspond with the condition of probation violated. Probationers can be arrested for violating simple probation conditions or for committing new crimes. The possible penalties for violating probation in the State of Arizona can include:

  • Imposition of new or suspended jail or prison sentences
  • Extensions of probation terms
  • Increased severity of probation conditions

Your defense strategy may be the only thing standing between you and lengthy confinement. An effective defense can result in a return to the original probation conditions, with no additional penalties, or even a termination of your probation. The attorneys at Tait & Hall knows the probation system and have experience defending clients in courtrooms across Arizona.

Those arrested for probation violations in Arizona are not subject to automatic penalties. They have the right to defend their case and fight the charges brought against them. Probationers have the odds stacked against them. Having a conviction and being on probation can lead to difficulties finding or keeping a job and paying fines. Violations are all too common, leading to years of punishment for sometimes simple and harmless violations.

You need a lawyer to help the judge understand the circumstances surrounding the alleged violation, your character, and how you’ve already learned from your original conviction. Don’t gamble with your future on the line. Contact the attorneys at Tait & Hall to challenge your probation violation. Our attorneys are experienced Maricopa County criminal defense attorneys familiar with the probation system. They will work with you to attain the best possible outcome for your case. If you’re facing probation violation charges anywhere in Arizona, contact the Attorneys at Tait & Hall.​





-Testimonials-

"I am not exaggerating when I say that choosing to hire Ryan Tait as my attorney has had a greater impact in changing the course of my life for the better than any other decision I have ever made. I retained him as my attorney during the most stressful time of my entire life--I was being investigated by law enforcement for something that had the potential for life altering consequences. Law enforcement had severe and damning evidence against me and I was absolutely terrified that I was going to lose everything. Ryan got involved and was incredibly aggressive in working with law enforcement to resolve the matter. He was able to get ALL charges dropped which was something I didn't think would ever be possible. Before hiring Ryan I had consulted with a different attorney who suggested that my best possible option was to plea to some pretty serious offenses-I was devastated at that news and continued my search for an attorney who wouldn't give up--that's when I found Ryan. I am so glad that I didn't listen to the other attorney and instead invested in hiring Ryan as my attorney. He was so easy to talk to and was compassionate and totally nonjudgmental. He believed in me and was confident and passionate about fighting for me. At the end of the whole ordeal I was told by an individual from law enforcement that I was incredibly lucky that I had such a good attorney--I believe this to be true and it is obvious that he is well known and respected and/or feared by law enforcement. If you are reading this review because you are searching for an attorney, I can say with confidence that you will not regret choosing to hire Ryan Tait."

"Arthur Hall used to be a former prosecutor before becoming a defense attorney. As soon as I learned that he was a prosecutor, I felt that I had an advantage not many other do. I feel that his past experience gave him knowledge of the law, but also a lot of confidence and rapport with the people who had the case against me and the judges. It was nice to feel confident in someone who had my freedom in his hands. He was aggressive with his negotiations because he knew based on my case and his prosecutorial experience what the best deal was that he could get. I highly recommend AJ to defend you."

"I was charged with an Aggravated Assault based on a mistaken identification. It was terrifying dealing with the possibility of going to prison for something I didn’t do! The prosecutor refused to dismiss my case for a long time, but Ryan never gave up. He kept fighting with the prosecutor until eventually my case was dismissed and I was finally able to go back to living my life! I would totally recommend Ryan to anyone who is innocent of their charges."

"My nephew was in the wrong place at the wrong time and ended up being charged with several serious felonies. He was facing no less than 40 years in prison! Our entire family was shocked when we found out how harsh Arizona’s laws are for people who make innocent mistakes. My nephew was such a good kid who did not deserve to be locked up for most of his life. Ryan not only answered all of our questions and helped us through the case, but truly cared about our family and my nephew. The State offered him a plea to 13-17 years. Ryan outlined all the pros and cons of going to trial, which is what my nephew did. After 3 weeks of trial, with all of us sitting on pins and needles, Ryan convinced the jury to come back not guilty on all of the most serious charges and my nephew ended up only serving a year! Our family will forever be grateful for Ryan’s passionate and caring representation."

"AJ Hall was INCREDIBLE from the minute I called him and told him my situation until the very last court date where he got me an incredible deal… More than I could have ever hoped for. AJ took on my case and made me feel comfortable right away and never made me promises he couldn’t keep. He guided me and never mislead me even good news or not. Throughout my whole very long ordeal he was so professional, informative, compassionate, and fought so hard to get me what I needed!! Although the battle was rough he never gave up and was willing to do whatever I wanted, take it as far as I wanted to get the outcome I wanted/needed! And I can’t be more thankful. He went to court so many times for me to fight my battle and to get me the best possible outcome and he did!!! The very last court date when it seemed the outcome on everything would be great except for 1 thing my worst fear jail time me having to leave my children and go there (I even had a date picked to check in) he got it over turned and save me from it and for that I am forever grateful.
