Honolulu Parole Violation Defense Attorney
What Happens If I Violate My Parole in Hawaii?
If the court has decided that you have violated your parole, then you will be made to attend a revocation hearing. A defense attorney can direct you through the process and defend your case. You and the prosecution can both produce evidence backing or negating the alleged violation.
If the court decides that you have failed to fulfill one or more of your terms, your parole will be revoked. It may also be revoked if you are convicted of a felony.
When you are placed on probation or released from prison ahead of finishing your sentence, you are provided with certain instructions that you must follow in order to avoid returning to prison. Our legal team at Myles S. Breiner Attorney at Law is here to guide you in understanding the terms of your parole and defending you from possible violations.

What Are Your Parole Terms?
The terms of your parole depend on your individual situation. However, there are certain restrictions that are typical in most parole agreements. You will need to:
- Adhere to imposed curfews.
- Support dependent children.
- Follow geographic restrictions regarding your residence and avoid leaving a specified area without permission from the court.
- Enroll in an acceptable course of study or receive appropriate employment.
- Obey alcohol and drug restrictions.
- Forgo possessing a firearm or other dangerous weapons.
Will the Court Modify the Terms of My Parole?
If the court determines that changing the terms of your parole will help you follow the law, then you may be entitled to a modification of terms. If you use or possess drugs or alcohol during your parole, you may need to attend a substance abuse treatment program and meet with a substance abuse counselor.
