Waukesha & Milwaukee Probation, Parole & Extended Supervision Revocation & ATR Attorneys
Presenting a strong defense against revocation of probation in Wisconsin
Wisconsin Criminal Lawyers Dedicated to Protecting Your Freedom
In Wisconsin, probation and extended supervision may be revoked based on any alleged rule violation. However, POs must follow the rules too, and should not be allowed to set unreasonable conditions of supervision or institute revocation proceedings unless the department of corrections supervisory guidelines call for revocation. The probation agents are required to follow DOC procedures for investigating alleged violations of the conditions of supervision and are required to afford you certain rights unless you waive your rights or admit the violations. Consult with an experienced Waukesha or Milwaukee revocation attorney to explore all your options when arrested for violating your supervision in Wisconsin. According to Wisconsin probation revocation law as established in the longstanding case of State ex rel. Plotkin v. H&SS Department, even if your agent can prove that you violated a condition of your supervision, alternatives to probation or parole supervision revocation should be considered, and revocation followed by incarceration should not be the result unless your PO proves:
- confinement is necessary to protect the public from further criminal activity by the offender; or
- the offender is in need of correctional treatment which can most effectively be provided if he is confined; or
- it would unduly depreciate the seriousness of the violation if probation were not revoked.
