The defendant requested officer assistance to remove things out of his home during a pending divorce. The officers discovered the defendant had a pending violation of probation warrant from a previous reckless driving conviction. The defendant’s payments for supervision had fallen into arrears. The officers arrested the defendant on charges of violating the terms of his probation.
RESULT: The defense instructed the client to complete all of the other conditions of his probation prior to the hearing. The attorney convinced the State and the probation officer to terminate the remaining term of probation and vacate the new charge without penalty.
