Probation Terminated in Absconding Case
Recently, an individual was charged with absconding from his probation officer after cutting off his ankle monitor. As a result, the State of NC demanded the individual serve their entire suspended sentence (which was several months long) in jail. Desiring to avoid such an outcome, the individual reached out to Goolsby Law Firm.
Criminal defense attorney Thom Goolsby took on the case and began working on the client’s behalf. Due to Attorney Goolsby’s insightful actions and defense skills at trial, the judge in the case terminated probation with no active time assessed for the client’s alleged absconding. Instead of going to jail, the client walked out of court a free man.The outcome of an individual case depends on a variety of factors unique to that case. Case results do not guarantee or predict a similar result in any similar or future case.
