If you have been convicted of a crime, you may have been placed on probation and ordered to perform several conditions that have severely limited your freedom. Jail time, fine payments, restitution, drug testing, and reporting to a probation officer are all terms of probation that if not completed, may result in a probation violation allegation. If you are accused of violating probation, a warrant may issue for your arrest. Do NOT tiptoe around the community waiting for your eventual arrest. Instead, call an Arroyo Grande probation violation lawyer who can assist you by getting your warrant recalled and back in good standing with the San Luis Obispo County Probation Department.
If you have successfully completed all terms of your probation, our San Luis Obispo expungement attorney can also assist you by filing a petition to have your conviction dismissed. Pursuant to California Penal Code 1203.4, many convictions can be dismissed by filing a petition with the court. While the record of your conviction will not completely disappear from all records, if the petition is granted, you may legally respond that you have never been convicted of a crime on employment applications. Our San Luis Obispo probation violation lawyer can help you put the past behind you and get your life back on track.
