Repeat Offenses And Protecting Yourself After A Conviction
If you have been convicted of a sex crime, there are numerous issues you need to consider so you don't violate the restrictions of your probation or parole. There are various types of technical violations that can land you back in jail, including failure to report a change in address, failure to secure required software for electronic devices or simply crossing too closely to a school or playground in an unfamiliar neighborhood. We can fight against petty, technical violations to see that you're not further entangled in a no-win system.
