It is important to understand HEARSAY evidence and its relevance at probation and parole violation hearings.
PAROLE revocation and PROBATION revocation after the imposition of a sentence are constitutionally indistinguishable. Parole and probation revocation is NOT part of a criminal prosecution and therefore not all of the rights due a defendant in a criminal procedure apply.
However, due process does require that a defendant at a probation revocation hearing be afforded, at a minimum, certain rights including, the right to confront and cross-examine adverse witnesses.
The well-trained and well-respected attorneys at Wallin & Klarich understand when and how to object to adverse hearsay evidence.
