In Oregon, judges routinely place individuals on probation to avoid the expense of jail time. However, failure to adhere to the terms of your probation places you at great risk of going to jail or prison. If you are accused of violating the terms of your probation or parole, obtain experienced legal help.
I am criminal defense attorney Shelley L. Fuller, and I have extensive experience defending individuals suspected of violating the terms of their probation for a variety of reasons such as:
- Committing another crime
- Failure to report to a probation officer
- Positive drug test results
- Substance abuse in violation of the probation order
- Failure to pay restitution or fines
- Failure to complete community service requirements
If you are suspected of a probation violation, this is not the time to make any decisions without an experienced criminal defense lawyer at your side. The accusations against you do not need to be proven beyond a reasonable doubt. If you are found in violation of your probation or parole, the judge can sentence you to the maximum sentence for the charges you previously were convicted of.

Highly Skilled Portland Parole Violation Attorney
After completing a prison sentence, many individuals are placed on parole or "post prison supervision" where additional supervision occurs. During this time, individuals are required to prove they no longer pose a threat through fulfilling strict requirements such as:
- No drinking
- Stay out of trouble
- Do not commit another crime
- Do not contact the victim
If you are accused of violating your parole, your parole officer can request that a warrant be issued for your arrest, or you could be ordered to report to jail by your parole officer. You are no longer entitled to court-appointed counsel, once you are placed into custody with a parole violation. I have the skills and tenacity to help secure your legal rights. I will take every measure possible to represent your best interests in the administrative Morrissey Hearing to help you avoid additional jail or prison time.
