VOP Success at Bucks County Court of Common Pleas

This morning, one of our clients was facing potential direct and technical violations of probation for picking up a new arrest for theft and absconding from supervision from the Bucks County Adult Probation Department in Doylestown. If someone is on probation from a previous case and they get arrested on new charges, that is a direct Violation of Probation/Parole (VOP). An indirect VOP is when someone fails to abide by the terms of their probation, such as failing to report to their probation officer or failing a drug test.

After Kenny, Burns & McGill were retained on this case, Attorney Tom Kenny’s team jumped in action. First, Kenny was able to ensure that our client would not have a detainer entered, pending the outcome of the Gagnon proceedings. Next, Kenny was able to get the theft and receiving stolen property charges dismissed at the district court level. Finally, at the Gagnon 2 hearing, Kenny was able to have a stipulation entered into regarding the absconding charge. This stipulation allowed the client to receive a new term of probation and not suffer any incarceration at all. Another great success for one of our clients.
