Defending Your Rights In Probation Violation Cases
Have you received a notice in the mail from the probation department that you have violated probation? And that you must appear in Queens Supreme Court Part K-13?
If you have, this can be a very serious matter. In New York state, you can only be on probation for a misdemeanor or felony charge. This means that if you are found to have violated your terms and conditions of probation, you can be subject to resentencing to either city jail time, or state prison, depending on what type of charge for which you are on probation.
