As a criminal defense attorney, Mr. Jarvis has negotiated an early release from probation or modifications to existing sentences. He handles:
- Post-conviction relief petitions
- Criminal trials
If there is an opportunity to reduce your sentence or probationary period, Mr. Jarvis will take the necessary steps to petition the court to do so. A Motion to Modify Sentence or Motion to Modify Probation can be filed immediately after the original sentencing. Your cooperation with law enforcement during the legal process helps facilitate a modification. The relationship Mr. Jarvis has with the court and it’s officers also contributes to a positive outcome.
It is possible to terminate the probation when a defendant has served more or less 50% of his probation, sometimes less.
Mr. Jarvis recommends that a defendant pay any restitution, fines or fees in full prior to filing the Petition for Early Termination. This increases the likely hood of obtaining early probation. In addition, an absence of probation violations or technical violations substantiates your good will and commitment to live a law-abiding life.
Arizona does not have an Expungement option which would erase the crime and punishment from your record.
Arizona does have a Judgement of Guilt Set Aside motion. If granted, defendants can tell people they have not previously been convicted of a crime. Keep in mind that job applications typically are more specific and ask “Have you ever been convicted, arrested, or charged?” You are required to respond yes. Most employers provide an opportunity to explain your situation.
A Restoration of Civil Rights is available for felony cases. The motion can request that the defendants right to vote or bear arms be restored.
For Aggravated Assault or Sexual misconduct, A Judgement of Guilt to be set aside will not be considered by the court under any circumstances.
