Are you facing probation violation charges? Probation violation is itself an offense that occurs if you violate terms and/or conditions of your probation. A probation violation could result in significant penalties namely, heavy fines, extended probation or jail time.
Depending on the terms and conditions of your probation, you could violate your probation in different ways:
- Committing other crimes or offenses while on probation;
- Failing to appear at your scheduled court date;
- Not reporting to your probation officer at the scheduled time or place;
- Not paying the required fines or restitution ordered by court;
- Getting in contact with people you are forbidden to contact, or traveling out of state without the permission of your probation officer;
- Possessing, using, or selling illegal drugs; and
- Getting arrested for another offense.
If you have violated your probation, the Probation officer might either issue a warning or require you to appear in court for a probation violation hearing. In making the decision the probation officer may consider the severity and type of condition violated, past probation violations or warnings, and other factors. If you are requested to appear in court, the probation officer will request some form of penalty, which may potentially include jail time.
