Often, when people are convicted of certain sex crimes, they will be placed on some sort of supervision, whether it be community or parole supervision. If this happens to you, you will most likely be assigned a supervising officer who will establish various terms you must follow for the duration of your community/parole supervision. If you are caught violating these terms, which are sometimes unreasonable to begin with, you can expect to face a wide array of very serious penalties. Please continue reading and reach out to a New Jersey parole supervision for life attorney to learn more about what happens when you violate community or parole supervision and how our firm can help you.

Parole & Community Supervision in New Jersey
If you are on community or parole supervision and are accused of violating its terms, you will most likely face additional years of supervision, as well as potential time behind bars. You should note that you may face jail time even if your alleged violation wasn’t technically a violation of the law. For example, you can face serious ramifications even for something as simple as missing your curfew. If you are facing an accusation of violating your community or parole supervision, you need an experienced New Jersey sex crimes attorney on your side.
What happens if I am caught violating community supervision?
If you are accused of violating community supervision, you will face a wide array of potential penalties. Violating CSL even without committing an actual crime can warrant up to 18 months of incarceration. In fact, even if you didn’t a crime but you did allegedly violate your CSL, you will most likely still be arrested and have to wait in jail until the date of your parole hearing. In the worst cases, courts may even charge a person who violated their parole with a 3rd-degree crime, which can warrant anywhere between 3-5 years of incarceration.
