If a person allegedly violates the terms made by the probation officer,
then he/she could face administrative revocation and be sent back to jail.
The same is true for
extended supervision violations. Once released from prison, that person is released to extended supervision,
or parole. That person must abide by all of the conditions of his/her
extended supervision or face revocation of that supervision. If an accusation
could send you or a loved one back to jail, contact the Law Offices of
Christopher J. Cherella today.
What Happens After a Probation is Violated?
After a person has violated his/her probation or extended supervision,
then administrative process commences. There are Alternatives to Revocation
(ATR) that must be considered by the probation officer before making a
final decision to revoke one's supervision. It is important that the
criminal defense attorney that you hire contact the probation officer
as soon as possible so as to discuss any possible ATR immediately. Every
revocation case is different and should be treated uniquely. Attorney
Cherella has the experience and know how to assist right away in looking
into the potential for an ATR.
In general, the process after a parole violation is as follows:
- If a person has violated his/her probation or extended supervision and
no ATR is given to the person, then he/she will first be subject to an
administrative hearing process. That hearing will take place before a
Wisconsin Administrative Law Judge.
- If the matter is successfully defended at that stage, then the person is
released back to probation or extended supervision.
- If the person is administratively revoked and the Court originally imposed
but stayed a specific jail or prison sentence, then the person may be
sent back to jail or prison.
- If the person is administratively revoked, and the Court originally withheld
a specific sentence, then he/she will have to go back before the trial
judge for sentencing after revocation. At court, a judge will review the
person's case and may even listen to testimony from the person's
probation officer. It is ultimately for the Court to determine the precise
amount of jail or prison sentence to be served at that point in the process.
