Consequences of a Parole Violation in Wisconsin

When you are on parole in Wisconsin, you must understand the requirements you must follow. Failure to meet any of the conditions could cause serious consequences.

1. You could land in prison.

When you accept parole upon being released from prison, you agree to certain conditions and requirements. For example, you may need to meet with a parole officer, pay restitution, or complete other requirements. Failure to meet requirements like these can result in extended prison time.

2. Your parole officer could put you in jail while investigating the case.

While your parole violation is under investigation, your parole officer may place you back in jail. However, before making a final decision on your punishment, your officer will look at all the facts and meet with you to discuss the situation.

3. You must pay supervision fees.

If you are under community supervision, such as parole or probation, you will be responsible for paying for a portion of the cost. You will only pay these fees once you have paid off your restitution fees (if applicable). If you fail to make these payments, you could land back in prison.

A parole violation is nothing to shrug off. A crime of this type could send you back to prison for an extended period of time. If you are under investigation for a parole violation, you should seek an experienced criminal law attorney as soon as possible.
