Violations of Probation Criminal Defense Attorney
If you received probation as part of a criminal sentence, it is imperative that you understand and follow the conditions stated.
These conditions typically include:
- Adhering to Any Restraining Orders
- Completing Any Counseling Ordered by the Court
- Keeping All Court Appointments
- Paying Any Court-Ordered Fines or Restitution
- Reporting to Your Probation Officer on a Regular Basis
- Taking Any Required Drug Tests
- Not Committing Any New Offenses
If you are sentenced to probation alternatively of imprisonment, the court expects that you will meet all of the requirements of your sentence. When you violate this trust, it is taken very seriously by the court. Unlike criminal cases, there is no jury trial at a probation hearing, nor does the case against you have to be proven beyond a reasonable doubt.
When a person violates their probation, they are putting their freedom at considerable risk. A probation violation can result in reinstatement, an extension of your probationary period or the revocation of probation. When probation is revoked, it typically results in incarceration. Many times this means the maximum sentence for the crime that was committed.
