Probation and parole are programs that allow convicted offenders to serve their sentences while remaining in their communities. However, one mistake could threaten your freedom.

At Jacqueline A. Scott & Associates, we help clients protect their probation and parole terms from revocation. With offices in the Bossier City-Shreveport area and Monroe, our lawyers represent clients throughout the state during parole and probation revocation hearings.

Jacqueline Scott is former probation/parole officer for the state of Louisiana and will fight hard to help you keep your freedom.

Protecting Your Freedom

In Louisiana, many criminal offenders are able to avoid serving their jail or prison terms through probation or are able to secure an early release from jail or prison through parole.

These programs allow convicted offenders to complete their sentences while remaining in their communities. However, probation and parole programs carry strict requirements. Common probation/parole conditions include:

  • Reporting to the Division of Probation and Parole
  • Staying within a certain geographic area
  • Submitting to drug or alcohol testing
  • Performing community service
  • Not associating with those engaged in illegal activities
  • Refraining from illegal activities
  • Attending regular meetings with parole or probation officers
  • Paying fines
  • Obeying curfews

If individuals fail to obey the terms of their probation or parole, the programs may be revoked and individuals will be incarcerated for the remaining term of their sentence. Attorney Jacqueline Scott is known by her peers as a dedicated legal advocate who fights to protect the rights of her clients. Over her 27-year long career, she has helped many clients protect their probation and parole sentences and avoid prison time.

Jacqueline Scott also works hard to help clients receive the best counseling and drug and alcohol rehabilitation services so they can get their lives back on track.

Representation At Revocation Hearings

At Jacqueline A. Scott & Associates, we work closely with probation officers and the courts to negotiate alternatives to revocation — such as alcohol or drug treatment programs or additional community service — to preserve our clients' probation and parole sentences. We also protect our clients' interests during parole and probation revocation hearings.

Parole and probation revocation hearings are akin to mini-trials. The state will introduce evidence of your violation and witnesses may testify against you. It is important to have experienced legal counsel representing your interests.

Over the years we have successfully represented many clients during revocation hearings. We understand the importance of preserving parole and probation sentences and do everything in our power to protect our clients' freedom.
