Those convicted of a misdemeanor or a felony will often be placed on probation after their case is completed. Unfortunately not everyone succeeds while on supervision and they may face a revocation of probation proceeding as a result. There are also instances in which one does successfully complete their requirements and they later have difficulty finding a job due to their having a permanent criminal record. Illinois law protects people in both of these circumstances by allowing a defendant to dispute the revocation of probation and, instead, ask for reinstatement. One who is saddled with a marked history may Petition to seal a criminal record. Whichever of these situations you face it is suggested that your contact a criminal defense lawyer for assistance.
