Having one’s probation revoked means incarceration, fines, and several other consequences. You may be facing revocation if you have been charged with a new offense or if you have failed to follow the terms of your probation. You should be aware that all is not lost if you are facing revocation. It may be possible to have the terms of your probation reinstated and, if that occurs, you will be allowed to finish out your term.

Virginia Beach lawyers arguing for the reinstatement of probation
The Commonwealth can seek the revocation of probation for a variety of reasons. The most common of these reasons is the probationer being charged with a new offense. Other common reasons the Commonwealth will seek revocation include:
- Failing to pay probation fees
- Failing to check in with one’s supervisor
- Moving and not notifying one’s supervisor of the new address
- Failing a drug test
If you find yourself in this situation you will likely be accused of violating your probation. The final decision, as to whether or not your probation should be revoked, is up to the presiding Judge. The Judge may revoke your probation, which means you will be incarcerated for the amount of time remaining on your sentence, or you may be reinstated.
Our Virginia Beach probation lawyers are familiar with the process involved in gaining probation reinstatement. To gain reinstatement one must show the Judge that they can succeed if given another chance on probation. This may be possible through showing evidence such as employment records, proof of educational enrollment, and other factors establishing stability. Our experience with the system allows us to know what arguments to make and how to present your case so you have the best chance possible in being reinstated on probation.
