Probation Violations

Probation Violations

If you are worrying about an open bench warrant related to your case, allow the attorneys at KIA LAW FIRM to assist you. We can resolve your bench warrant, probation violation, failure to appear, failure to pay a fine and failure to comply with any other term of your criminal case.

We can generally recall most misdemeanor warrants without your presence pursuant to California Penal Code 977(a). This means that you don’t even have to appear in court on the first appearance. Once the warrant is recalled, it will be removed from the police database, therefore, if you are pulled over for a minor traffic offense, the police officer would not be able to take you to court.

If you have a warrant or other type of mandatory appearance you missed, it is important to take care of that problem now. Stop worrying about that bench warrant and take charge of your life. If you have a new job opportunity or a background check that you know is about to commence, clear that warrant as soon as possible. Most Judges and Prosecutors are willing to resolve warrants when the Defendant is proactive. Don’t wait until you are arrested to hire a lawyer for bench warrant violations. Usually, we can reinstate your probation without additional penalties.

Moreover, while you have a bench warrant, probation generally ceases. If you were placed on probation and you obtained a bench warrant during probation, the clock stops ticking. Therefore, you could be on probation for years. Don’t let this affect your life. Call KIA LAW FIRM for sound advice. As always, we never charge for the initial consultation.
