Parole Violation Defense

If you’re convicted of a federal offense, you may be eligible for supervised release after completing your prison sentence. Federal supervised release programs typically require you to submit to regular monitoring for a period of anywhere from three to five years. If you fail to adhere to the terms of your parole during the supervised release period or if you commit a new crime, you may end up spending more time behind bars. A qualified Chicago criminal attorney can help to navigate the legal system and protect your rights if you’ve been arrested for a federal supervised release violation.

How Federal Supervised Release Programs Work

Under federal law, supervised release is required for any individual who is convicted of a federal offense where a period of incarceration is part of the penalty. Once you serve your time, the Bureau of Prisons will assign a federal parole officer to your case and specify the length of time your supervised release will last. During this period, you are expected to make regular reports to your parole officer and refrain from engaging in any criminal acts. Depending on the circumstances of your original conviction, you may also be required to submit to regular drug testing, attend anger management, seek mental health counseling, complete your education or hold down a steady job. Once your supervised release ends, you are no longer subject to the scrutiny of the Bureau of Prisons. The conditions of a supervised release program are tailored to the individual’s specific situation but some of the most common violations that can result in additional penalties may include:

  • Failing to report to your parole officer
  • Failing a drug test
  • Engaging in criminal activity
  • Failure to pay any court-ordered fines
  • Failure to pay restitution to your victims
  • Violating curfew

If the supervising officer has reason to believe that you’ve violated any of the terms of your release, he or she can file a violation warrant for your arrest. Once you’re picked up by law enforcement, the court will schedule a violation hearing to determine whether you will be returned to prison. Depending on the type of violation you’ve been accused of, the judge may or may not choose to allow your release on bond. The original sentencing judge will preside over the violation hearing and determine whether you should be returned to prison. The judge also has the option of modifying or extending the supervised release order at this time. For example, the judge may require you to serve time in jail or go to drug or alcohol treatment before allowing you to return to supervised release.

What to Do if You’ve Been Charged with a Supervised Release Violation

If you’ve been arrested for an alleged violation of the terms of your supervised release, the outcome of your case depends on a number of factors. The court will consider the type of violation involved as well as whether or not you’ve had any previous supervised release violations. A conviction for a supervised release violation can land you even more prison time than you served for the original crime. When you’re facing a criminal charge for federal parole violation, it’s vital that you enlist the help of an experienced Chicago criminal defense lawyer as soon as possible.
