About Probation Violations

A probation violation occurs when a person fails to abide by the terms of their probation as outlined in their sentencing following a conviction. Probation is often given to individuals who are first time offenders or who have committed minor crimes, however this entitles them to probation only so long as all requirements are met. Failure to comply with the terms can forfeit your probation and result in immediate arrest and incarceration. If you believe you have violated your probation in some form, contact a knowledgeable lawyer to discuss your situation and how we may be able to help you.

Types of Violations

Violation of probation terms can include the following:

  • Failure to report to your probation officer
  • Failure to appear for scheduled court appointments
  • Failure to comply with a court ordered drug or alcohol program
  • Failure to make court ordered restitution payments to victims
  • Being arrested or charged with a new crime
  • Associating with known criminals

Violating any of the above points could lead to your probation officer requesting a bench warrant be issued for your immediate arrest. Failure to follow the terms of your probation can lead to serious penalties, and if you believe a warrant has been issued for your arrest, do not hesitate to retain smart representation immediately.
