Cobb County Probation Revocations

Posted by Richard Lawson | Apr 24, 2011 | 0 Comments

Probation officers in Cobb County state and superior court, as well as service the Acworth area, are tough when it comes to probation violations.  If one of their probationers commits a new offense, even a minor traffic offense, while serving on probation, many POs are quick to violate them. 

A probation revocation for a new criminal or traffic offense can lead to a persons probation being completely revoked.  What is even more threatening is when a person is serving first offender probation.  On first offender probation, even if you have already served a lot of time and are nearing the end of your probation sentence, you will face re-sentencing if you are found responsible at your probation revocation hearing.  In addition, you lose your first offender status and are convicted of the underlying felony.  This is a harsh scenario.
