Probation Violation Defense Lawyer
Examples of Probation Violations
There are various ways in which you can violate your probation. Often,
if you have had no prior arrests or convictions and are convicted of a
crime, you may receive probation rather than jail time because of being
a first time offender, or committing only a minor crime. Regardless of
why you were able to receive probation, it is still given with strict
guidelines that you must follow or you run the risk of completing your
sentence in jail. Probation has a term, just as any sentence would, which
could last from several months to years depending on the severity of the
crime. Anyone violating their probation can end up in jail with no notice,
especially if a bench warrant was issued.
Some common reasons for probation violations are:
- Failing to appear for a court appearance
- Unpaid fines assigned by the court
- Not reporting to your probation officer
- Not completing your community service
- Not completing a rehabilitation program
- Not following the guidelines of probation
- Being arrested
- Committing another crime
- Possession of drugs
- Possession of a weapon
