When a probationer is arrested for an alleged probation violation, they are usually held in custody for 21 days with minimal propect for release during that time. It is during this period that our experienced and aggressive criminal defense attorney, Mark Weingart, can negotiate with the probation officer to minimize the risk of new charges being filed against his client. The primary objective of these negotiations is limiting the amount of jail time served to just the 21 days after execution of the bench warrant.
