Attorney Chris Kaigle with The Umansky Law Firm represented a client who was charged with a felony of violation on probation. The case came from a 2007 grand theft charge. The client was placed on probation for a period of two years. During that time, he didn't complete any of these conditions of probation. The probation conditions were that he complete community service hours, pay restitution to the alleged victim from the grand theft, pay all the court costs and fines, attend and complete an anti-theft class, and also write a letter of apology. He didn't complete any of these conditions. Instead, he decided to move out of state and there was a warrant out for him for over three years. He contacted the Umansky Law Firm and he decided that he wanted to get the matter resolved. Mr. Kaigle arranged the time with the bondsman to have him do a walk through.

The judge agreed with Attorney Kaigle and he actually ended up being released on his own recognizance where he didn't have to pay any kind of money to get out of jail. Once he was out of jail, it was very important for Attorney Kaigle to make sure that he got all those conditions of probation completed so that he would not be sentenced to prison. Unlike a misdemeanor probation, when a person violates felony probation, they're facing prison time. It was serious and there was a good chance that he would end up going to prison. Mr. Kaigle got him enrolled into the anti-theft class and he completed that, along with paying all this court costs, fines, restitution, and to write a letter of apology to the victim. Attorney Kaigle went back to court and the only thing we had in his favor was to say he completed everything he was supposed to. She sympathized with him and gave him credit for it, and, ultimately, agreed to go ahead and dismiss the violation of probation along with terminating this probation. He walked out of that jail and that courtroom a free man without having any other consequences and being able to put this behind him.
