Legal Counsel For Probation Violation Concerns
If accused of violating your probation, you are at risk of returning to jail with little to no proof of your offense. In Iowa, the standard of proof for a probation violation is lower than at a trial. If your probation officer or the Department of Corrections even suspects that you have violated the terms of your probation, a judge will likely issue a warrant for your arrest. If you have been accused of violating probation, it is wise to enlist the services of a respected and dedicated attorney who can attend your hearing with you and protect you against going back to jail.

Common Accusations Of Violation Of Probation
