When someone is accused of violating the terms of their parole and probation in Nevada, they could face severe repercussions. Punishments for probation violation in Nevada range from heavy fines and short jail sentences to an extension of the probation sentence and even the imposition of a full-term prison sentence.

The experienced criminal defense lawyers at Law Office of Louis Schneider are skilled at defending violations of probation and parole, including those violations that involve a new arrest. If the courts determine you committed a parole violation, you could face a separate, formal charge, for example:

  • Associating with known felons
  • Failing a drug or alcohol test
  • Failing to complete community service
  • Failing to pay fines and court costs
  • New allegations of committing a crime

Sometimes, there are other possible sanctions such as increasing the level of supervision or placement in an electronically monitored home confinement program. If you are seen as a threat to public safety or have committed additional crimes, you can go back to jail and be tried for any new crimes.

Whether you already face a motion to revoke probation, or you suspect one may be filed, we can help. We understand probation violation laws in-depth and will use our expertise to defend you at every turn of the process.
