Do you need a Columbia S.C. Probation Violation Lawyer?

 South Carolina Probation Violation Attorneys

Probation in  South Carolina is an alternative to prison and jail penalties for some criminal offenses in South Carolina. Generally, individuals who are first-time offenders or individuals who commit non-violent crimes are eligible for probation. If you are arrested in South Carolina, depending upon the severity of the crime, prior probation violations, and your prior criminal record, there are legal options available to help you avoid jail or prison time, including probation.  Even if you plead guilty or are found guilty of a crime, you may be eligible for a probationary sentence. Complying with the terms of probation can be difficult. Navigating these legal nuances of a probation revocation can be difficult. Call our Columbia criminal defense lawyers at (80) 252-4800 to get answers to your questions.

SC Probation RulesProbation Violation Lawyer

Probation is ordered by the circuit judge sitting in Criminal Court or “General Sessions Court” as an alternative to jail and allows you to remain in the community, thereby avoiding being sent to prison.  If you are placed on probation in South Carolina, you will be assigned a probation officer by the South Carolina Department of Probation, Parole and Pardon Services (SCDPPPS). 

Your South Carolina probation officer will monitor your progress and ensure that you are complying with your probation requirements and maintaining good behavior.  If you are facing a probation violation or probation revocation, a South Carolina criminal defense attorney at the Strom Law Firm, LLC can help. Probation violations can stem from something as simple as a misunderstanding but can lead to a harsh jail sentence. Do not wait until you are in prison to contact a South Carolina criminal defense attorney to see what your best course of action is.

What Happens if I Violate My Probation in SC?

If your Probation Agent believes that you have violated the terms of your probation or the South Carolina probation guidelines, your probation officer may:

  • modify the terms or conditions of your probation, or
  • serve you with a warrant to bring you back before the criminal court to revoke your probationary sentence.

If you are found to be in violation of your probation you may be subject to:

  • Probation Revocation (you’ll have to go prison for your originally suspended sentence)
  • Shock Probation
  • Probation termination
  • Imprisonment up to the statutory maximum sentence for your original offense
  • Extension of probation time
  • Time in jail as a condition of continuing probation
  • Addition of special conditions for your probation
  • Counseling
  • Inpatient substance abuse treatment
  • Additional community service or fines
  • Probation Violation Hearings in South Carolina

If you violate the conditions of your probation, your probation officer may seek a warrant to arrest you for violating your probation. If you are arrested for a probation violation in South Carolina, you will have a hearing where your probation officer will present evidence before a General Sessions Court Judge. Your probation officer may ask the Court to revoke your probation and impose a period of incarceration, up to your probationary sentence.  If you are arrested for violating your probation, your freedom is at stake, and the Strom Law Firm, LLC can help you protect your rights.

What Our Clients Say

They truly care
Mrs Vallery, who answered the phone took more care and attention to detail than any other law office, that I have called, in 2 years+. She diligently took notes to give to the lawyers and cared about my situation and let me actually tell everything without cutting me short. Out of over 100 law offices, this is rare treatment. Care. Consideration. That means more than anything going through this…

From Self-Representation to Victory in SSDI Case!
My experience with Mario and his staff was outstanding. When everyone said to give up my case with SSDI and after being poorly represented and losing. I had to file my own appeals and represent myself. I literally called every attorney in the book. Then I called Mario cold – I expected one more no! Well, this gentleman took my case and won. He knows the law and cares a lot. I am proud to call him my friend. If you need a professional to help you, call these guys.

A Lifesaver in the Courtroom, Ensuring Freedom with A1 Professionalism
Needed a lifesaver. I had gotten myself into a bad situation and the possibility of going to prison. Through the diligence and hard work done by attorney Alley B., I was able to walk out of that courtroom a free man. No tricks just hard down attorney work. She was an A1 professional and knew every inch of the Law pertaining to my case. For that, I am forever grateful.
