Contact Our Las Vegas, NV Parole Attorney Today
Smith Legal Group has represented countless clients facing parole violation charges. Our parole attorneys understand how the system works and how to help individuals continue to improve their lives and stay out of jail. Parole violations can have significant impacts on your life. For instance, if found violating your agreement, Nevada can remand you to prison to serve your sentence or order home confinement for the duration. We help you avoid those situations by mounting an aggressive defense on your behalf.
What Constitutes a Parole Violation
If you spent time in prison but were paroled, your rehabilitation journey is not over. There will be any number of stipulations that govern whether you can remain on parole. You might have to abide by a curfew, abstain from alcohol and drugs, avoid certain locations, or live in a halfway house. Some parole agreements require participation in education or vocational programs, counseling, and mandatory drug tests.
What to Expect from Your Parole Violation Hearing
There are some similarities between criminal trials and parole violation cases. For instance, you can testify on your behalf during the hearing. However, trial juries do not have to find that you violated parole beyond a reasonable doubt. Instead, prosecutors only need to provide substantial evidence that the parole violation occurred. Even though there is a lower standard for guilt, we have several options at our disposal. For instance, we can establish the following to prevent a parole violation conviction:
- You are the victim of a false accusation.
- The authorities mistakenly arrested you.
- You did not violate your parole agreement.
