The bad news is you do not have to do much to be charged with a violation of probation (VOP) in Connecticut. Even conviction for a motor vehicle violation or failure to report to your probation officer can result in a violation of your probation and send you to jail. Making matters worse, you are not entitled to a jury trial on a VOP charge, and the prosecutor does not have to prove you that you are guilty beyond a reasonable doubt. If you are charged with a violation of probation your freedom is at risk!

Defending Against a Violation of Probation Charge
But there is good news, too. You are entitled to a hearing where the prosecution must prove that you violated your probation by a preponderance of the evidence. Attorney Paun will work hard to present evidence in your favor and avoid a finding that you violated your probation.
Even if you admit to a probation violation or are found in violation of your probation after a hearing, you will not necessarily go to jail to finish serving the unsuspended portion of your original sentence. This is because you are entitled to an additional hearing before a judge that might result in you not going to jail at all.
Frequently, it is at this second phase of the hearing process that effective advocacy on your behalf can make a big difference in what happens to you.
