Working To Successfully Resolve Probation Issues
Many criminal defendants agreed to be sentenced to a period of community supervision, also known as probation, as part of a plea bargain. Others may be sentenced to probation following a trial. Successfully navigating the rules and requirements of probation can be tricky. If you violate the terms of your community supervision, the court can revoke your probation and sentence you to jail time, no matter how slight that violation may seem.
Attorney Kate Bihm has assisted many clients with probation issues and you can trust her professional, practical approach and advice. To speak with Kate, call The Bihm Firm, PLLC, in Conroe at 936-647-2779.
Get Help From A Lawyer Who Understands The System
Motions to revoke probation and motions to adjudicate function as miniature trials with special rules and procedures. A different standard of proof applies than in most criminal cases and the prosecution typically offers particular types of evidence. You need an attorney who knows what to expect, knows what evidence is available for your defense, and is willing to go the extra mile to try and get it.
As a former prosecutor, Kate handled hundreds of motions to revoke and learned the inner workings of the probation system. As a defense attorney, Kate puts that experience to work for her clients, seeking solutions that can help give clients the peace of mind they need moving forward.
Kate offers a unique service, called “probation bootcamp”, in which defendants who are currently on probation can retain Kate to consult with her, and learn some tips and tricks for achieving success with probation. During a two-hour consultation, Kate sets her clients up with dozens of tools to help them fulfill the terms and conditions of community supervision, and avoid incarceration.
In some cases you may be eligible for early termination of probation. It is possible for the judge to release you from probation early and Kate has successfully represented clients in getting released early from probation in the past. In other cases, it may not be in the client’s best interests to file for early termination. When Kate is retained for this purpose, she investigates all of the facts before filing in order to ascertain whether filing such a motion is in the client’s best interests.
