Dedicated Advocacy To Protect Your Future
Criminal defendants are usually sentenced to probation as a lighter alternative to prison time. However, probation is by no means a “get out of jail free” card. If you are on probation, you are expected to respect certain terms and conditions. Failure to do so can result in arrest and revocation of your probation to jail.
At William Long Whitesell, L.L.C., we have represented many people across Lowndes County and southern Georgia facing probation revocation. We understand the full extent of the law and how different crimes can impact your probation status. We can help you protect your status and present a compelling case for why you should be allowed to stay on probation.
Knowledgeable In The Complexities Of Probation Violations
Something as small as missing a call from your probation officer or appearing at the wrong courtroom can have serious consequences, including jail time. Stints in jail make it impossible to keep your job and fulfill your obligations to your family. Because probation violations are handled differently than other criminal offenses, it is important to work with a lawyer experienced in these matters.
Attorney William Long Whitesell has practiced criminal defense in the state of Georgia since 2001, prosecuted crimes in Remerton and successfully represented many defendants as the leader of our firm. His nearly 20 years of experience are invaluable to our clients.
We do not disappear when your original case is concluded; if you need assistance with probation or another matter after you are sentenced, we are happy to answer your questions and help you make decisions that preserve your best interests, and represent you if necessary.
