Many folks on probation in two different counties have concerns as whether both counties can violate them at the same time. Yes, they can both violate you for one (1) singular charge. Ultimately, this can lead to one (1) charge leading to a significant amount of jail or prison time because of probation and the VOPs.
One of the many benefits of retaining the criminal attorneys of Hackworth Law in these situations to ensure a coordinated approach is undertaken to handle all the situations. Countless times individuals have three (3) different attorneys handling their cases in three (3) difference counties. This often occurs when folks rely on the public defender’s officer for representation. The attorneys do not coordinate their efforts and the resolution of the new charge violates the probation resulting in jail/prison for the individual.
Our firm has handled many such situations. Additionally, these situations often require the new law violation case be taken to trial because two (2) counties rarely agree with the sentence in light of the new law violation. We have encountered this is especially common when felony probation is involved.
