When you’re released from prison, you’ll likely have to serve time on supervision to complete your sentence. Extended supervision, is like Wisconsin’s version of parole. Extended supervision typically requires you to meet with a probation and parole officer at regularly scheduled intervals. You’ll check in and show that you’re still complying with the terms of your parole, and you might have to do things like take drug tests, stick to a curfew, or attend counseling. You’ll also have to make all your required court appearances and stay out of trouble.
But what happens if you violate your extended supervision in Wisconsin?
Did You Violate Extended Supervision? Here’s What Can Happen
Violating your extended supervision means that you didn’t hold up your end of the deal. Maybe you failed a drug test, didn’t show up for a meeting with your probation and parole officer, or stopped attending counseling that the court ordered you to attend.
If you’re accused of a violation, you can be picked up and sent to jail for revocation proceedings. Your Milwaukee parole violation lawyer can represent you and explain your side of the story to the court.
However, if the judge finds that you violated your supervision, you could face serious consequences, including:
- Community service
- Mandatory counseling
- Revocation of your supervision, which means you have to go back to prison
Sometimes your attorney can defend you, though, such as when you didn’t intend to violate your supervision, or if you were accused of a new offense that isn’t criminal in nature. There are several other ways your lawyer may be able to defend you, too.
